Paper Abstract

On the capillary level of intact organs of humans and mammals, fields of gradients of all measurable parameters are found exclusively. Therefore, a precise monitoring e.g. of hemoglobin concentration (Hb) and oxygenation (HbO2) in the microcosm of blood capillaries is only possible when the heterogeneity of tissue data is recorded at a representative number of measuring points. For the collecting of the required data both stochastic or imaging techniques can be applied.
