Paper Abstract

Results are presented of the study of the cutaneous blood flow in patients with neurological manifestations of lumbar osteochondrosis with the help of a laser specklometer developed by the present authors. Comparative analyses of the present data with the results of IR examination and dermatothermometry has shown a great informative value of speckle-optical indices. Dynamic of the cutaneous blood flow in patients corresponded to the change in the high-frequency fluctuations spectra. In the zones of prevailing innervation of the affected radix a decrease in the average frequency of the spectrogram was observed, which reflects a decrease in the cutaneous blood flow intensity in this region.
