Non invasive monitoring of blood flow using ultrasound modulated diffused light
Monitoring Tissue Blood Flow is vital during states of decreased or increased flow. However, there are currently no non-invasive devices that measure microcirculatory blood flow in tissue continuously. This talk will present a novel device that uses Ultrasound Modulation of Diffused Light to perform non-invasive monitoring of blood flow at the microcirculatory level underneath its sensor.
We demonstrate the ability of Ornim's device ( the CerOx) to monitor tissue blood flow in various situations. The ability to monitor critical processes such as autoregulation in the brain and its clinical importance are shown.
