Paper Abstract

We propose a method to measure blood pressure of small vessels non-invasively and in-vivo: by combining PA imaging with compression US. Using this method, we have shown pressure-lumen area tracking, as well as estimation of the internal vessel pressure, located 2 mm deep in tissue. Additionally, reperfusion can be tracked by measuring the total PA signal within a region of interest (ROI) after compression has been released. The ROI is updated using cross-correlation based displacement tracking1. The change in subcutaneous perfusion rates can be seen when the temperature of the hand of a human subject drops below the normal.
