Paper Abstract

The use of laser anemometry blood flow systems, in vivo, and especially LA fiberscopes is gaining momentum. The systems are usually based on the reflected laser Doppler system, where the beams propagate along the fiber or bundle of fibers. The systems are often equipped with a specially designed steering mechanism to enable the positioning of the fiber probe in several points across the measured site. The optical design allows for a very small measuring volume. The systems are becoming a powerful and important tool for the in vivo analysis of blood flow.
