Paper Abstract

The topographic imaging technique using a backscattered diffusing light is proposed to monitor dynamics of blood vessels depending on the blood flow as a noncontact and noninvasive method. Their depth in skin tissues can be estimated by using the relation between a spatially-integrated backscattered intensity and a probability density function of an optical path-length. The topological image of the blood vessels is obtained per 0.08 sec by the developed system.
