Paper Abstract

Blood flow measurements were obtained with a laser Doppler fiberscope anemometer of our design. A specially designed steering mechanism enabled the positioning of the fiber probe in several points across the measured site. The anemometer was based on the reflected laser Doppler system, and the optical design allowed for a very small measuring volume. The system is shown to be a powerful and important tool for the in vivo analysis of blood flow.
