Simultaneous photoacoustic detection of red blood cell aggregation and oxygenation

Abstract

Red blood cell (RBC) aggregation is a reversible process which occurs in the presence of increased plasma fibrinogen concentration and low flow conditions. It results in the RBCs forming structures that resemble “stacks of coins” and/or clusters impairing blood flow and the ability of oxygen to diffuse to surrounding tissues. We investigate the use of… (More)
