Paper Abstract

With laser-Doppler flowmetry (LDF) there can be examined qualitatively parameters of microcirculation such as flux, concentration, and speed of the erythrocytes in tissues. The LDF procedure is based on the signal processing of Doppler- shifted laser light. LDF measuring gear doesn't provide information on the origin of the backscattered photons, i.e. about the extension of the inspected tissue range. These and other information, which are important for the diagnostic judgement of the microcirculation of the tissue, can be estimated with the help of a computer simulation. Therefore the authors have developed a computer program which is able to simulate LDF measurements.
