Paper Abstract

The EMPHO SSK is a scanning micro lightguide spectrophotometer constructed for 3D-imaging in all tissues of humans and mammals. By monitoring of intracapillary hemoglobin oxygenation and concentration very precise information of the microcosm of the oxygen supply level of tissues can be gained. Measurements in skin and liver revealed that on the basis of numeric data obtained by optical remission techniques 3D-images can be constructed which provide information on functional structures of intact organs.
