Paper Abstract

An instrument has been designed and implemented capable of mapping oxygen distribution in skin tissue over an area of several square centimeters with a spatial resolution of better than 1 mm and with a resolution in oxygen partial pressure of better than 5 torr. The measurement scheme is optical and is based on luminescence lifetime. It is non- invasive and avoids any patient contact with electrical parts. The instrument should be a valuable supplement to other clinical methods for monitoring microcirculation and peripheral oxygen supply.
