Cutaneous blood flow (CBF) can be assessed non-invasively with lasers. Unfortunately, movement artefacts in the laser skin signal (LS(sk)) might sometimes compromise the interpretation of the data. To date, no method is available to remove movement artefacts point-by-point. Using a laser speckle contrast imager, we simultaneously recorded LS(sk) and the signal backscattered from an adjacent opaque surface (LS(os)). The completion of a first protocol allowed a definition of a simple equation to… CONTINUE READING
