Laser Doppler blood-flow imaging combined with topographical imaging of the sample
We present a combination of topography measurements based on digital fringe projection and blood flow imaging based on Laser Doppler Imaging (LDI). Both techniques are optical, non-contact and high-speed whole-field methods well suited for in-vivo measurements on the skin. Laser Doppler perfusion imaging is an interferometric technique used for visualization of two-dimensional (2D) maps of blood flow. Typically the measured sample has a surface with a specific 3D relief. In many cases the sample relief can be of importance for correct interpretation of the obtained perfusion data. We combined the topography and the blood flow data obtained from the same object. The structural information provided by the topography is completed by the functional images provided by LDI.
