Paper Abstract

Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) is a technique to assess the spatial variation in absorption and scattering properties of the biological tissues. DOT provides the measurement of changes in concentrations of oxy-hemoglobin and deoxy-hemoglobin. The oxygenation images are reconstructed by the measured optical signals with nearest-neighbor pairs of sources and detectors. In our study, a portable DOT system is built with optode design on a flexible print circuit board (FPCB). In experiments, the hemodynamics temporal evolution of exercises and vessel occlusions are observed with in vivo measurements form normal subjects and some patients in intensive care unit.
