Paper Abstract

We present a new method for 2.5 and 3 vector component velocimetry. We call this method particle streak velocimetry OCT (PSV-OCT). PSV-OCT generates two-dimensional, 2.5 vector component (v_x,|v_y|,v_z) cross-sectional maps of microscale flow velocity (e.g. biological cilia-driven fluid flow). The enabling insight is that a tracer particle in sparsely-seeded fluid flow traces out streaks in (x,z,t)-space. The streak orientations in x-t and z-t yield v_x and v_z, respectively. The in-plane (x-z plane) residence time yields the out-of-plane speed |v_y|. Vector component values are generated by fitting streaks to a model of image formation. We demonstrate cross-sectional estimation of (v_x,|v_y|,v_z) in two important animal models in ciliary biology: Xenopus embryos (tadpoles) and mouse trachea. Further, by incorporation the assumption of incompressible flow into the estimation process, we are able to generate 3 vector component (v_x,v_y,v_z) estimates in three spatial dimensions from 2.5 vector component measurements taken in parallel OCT planes in 3D space.
