Paper Abstract

A method is proposed for determining blood oxygen saturation in frozen tissue. The method is based on a spectral camera system equipped with an Acoustic-Optical-Tuneable-Filter. The HSI-setup is validated by measuring series of unfrozen and frozen samples of a hemoglobin-solution, a hemoglobin-intralipid mixture and whole blood with varying oxygen saturation. The theoretically predicted linear relation between oxygen saturation and absorbance was observed in both the frozen sample series and the unfrozen series. In a final proof of principal, frozen myocardial tissue was measured. Higher saturation values were recorded for ventricle and atria tissue compared to the septum and connective tissue. These results are not validated by measurements with another method. The formation of methemoglobin during freezing and the presence of myoglobin in the tissue turned out to be possible sources of error.
