Paper Abstract

In vivo measurement of NADH autofluorescence is strongly disturbed by changes in the Hb absorption of excitation and fluorescence light. An approach to this problem is based on the diffuse reflectance measurement of 805 nm (isobestic point of Hb/HbO2). According a Kubelka-Munk calculation an increase in Hb/HbO2 concentration leads to a decrease of diffuse reflectance. This gives correction terms for the measured autofluorescence data. An equipment to perform such measurements will be presented.
