We investigate theoretically the non-invasive determination of blood flow in muscles of the extremities using laser Doppler measurements. Laser Doppler spectra are calculated using Monte Carlo simulations and solutions of the correlation diffusion equation. The extremities are modelled as a two-layered turbid medium. The first layer represents the skin and subcutaneous fat layer and the second layer the muscle. It is shown that the absolute root-mean-square velocity of the blood in the muscle… CONTINUE READING
