Paper Abstract

The human blood sedimentation peculiarities caused by chemical agents adding or coronary heart disease of a patient was studied by two coherent-domain optical techniques. These are OCT and spatially-modulated laser beam transillumination technique. The OCT method due to its high sensitivity was used to study the sedimentation of a whole and less diluted blood, i.e. the sedimentation of the aggregated blood. The spatially-modulated method was used to study a highly diluted blood, i.e. sedimentation of individual and weakly-interacting erythrocytes and was tested in clinical research.
