To investigate the feasibility of instrument-independent perfusion units for laser Doppler flowmetry, a comparison was performed of two commercial fiberoptic laser Doppler perfusion monitors measuring the same flux situation for two different types of probes. In vivo measurements were performed on the cortex of pig's kidney, with an ultrasonic arterial flow meter as reference. The flow was mainly varied by internal arterial constriction using a balloon catheter. For each probe, instruments are… CONTINUE READING
