Paper Abstract

Lightweight handheld laser Doppler instrument is designed for blood flow assessment in soft tissues of oral cavity. Laser light source, fiber optic probe detector and amplifier circuitry are mounted inside the compact hand held probe assembly to minimize noise and to exclude optical fiber motion artifacts. Both the instrument and data processing software are optimized for the using of the standard PC sound interface as the data acquisition device that provides low cost and effective solution for clinical use. The instrument is suitable for quantitative diagnostics of gingivitis and other disorders in dentistry.
