We employed the scattering-phase theorem recently derived in our laboratory to extract tissue scattering properties from quantitative phase images. Using tissue path-length maps that contain nanoscale information about the tissue, the scattering mean free path l(s) and anisotropy factor g were measured in a spatially resolved manner.
Stored red blood cells undergo numerous biochemical, structural, and functional changes, commonly referred to as storage lesion. How much these changes impede the ability of erythrocytes to perform their function and, as result, impact clinical outcomes in transfusion patients is unknown. In this study we investigate the effect of the storage on the… (More)
