Paper Abstract

A number of contact luminescence photometers and spectrophotometers were worked out at SOI for estimation of functional state of living tissues and organs, and the pathological condition of organism in particular. Contact double-wavelength microfluorometers were designed for fluorescence measurements of pyridine nucleotides and flavoproteids. There are two design modifications of the microfluorometers for biopsy diagnostics and for use during the time an operation. Intraoperation luminescence probe makes it possible to evaluate the status of the blood microcirculation in an organ as basic induce of the vitality of tissues and organs during surgical operations. Processing of this instrument is based on luminescence angiography. A fiber-optic medical spectrophotometer is for fluorescence spectra registration of skin local sections in the region 400-800 nm. Some examples of the clinical use of these apparatus are described.
