Dynamic Light Scattering for non-invasive diagnosis of blood flow and blood microcirculation

Professor Igor Meglinski (University of Oulu, Finland)

Coherence is a fundamental property of light that has attracted great attention in the past. By examining the loss of coherence of light due to dynamic scattering, we are able to observe blood flow and blood micro-circulation in brain and other biological tissues non-invasively. In this lecture the new insights from the combined use of Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) technique, accompanied with the Dynamic Fluorescent Imaging and computational adaptive optical filtering, are presented. We demonstrate that this approach entails great promise for advanced studies of blood and lymph vessels and microcirculation therein. The developed imaging approach has great potential in the studies of blood microcirculation in vivo and can significantly expand the capabilities of preclinical functional studies of brain vasculature disorders, and is highly promising in various applications in the fields of vascular biology, tumor biology and immunology.
