Paper Abstract

The assessment of functioning microcirculatory network implies usage of adequate tools for testing the network responses on local changes of vessels state. While there are well-developed and widely used methods, such as focal application of vasoactive substances, or electric stimulation, there is a need for a non-destructive (and ideally – non-contact) and local method of impact a single vessel in order to trigger the network responce.

In this paper, we investigate the possibility of applying the effect of a reversible change in the diameter of a blood vessel caused by laser radiation as a functional test of a microcirculatory system. For this purpose, we combine this effect with the method of micro-PIV (particle image velocimetry), which provides information on both the dynamics of blood flow in neighboring segments and the changes in their diameters.
