Project

Skin Perfusion Photography

Guy Satat

Skin and tissue perfusion measurements are important parameters for diagnosis of wounds and burns, and for monitoring plastic and reconstructive surgeries. In this project, we use a standard camera and a laser source in order to image blood-flow speed in skin tissue. We show results of blood-flow maps of hands, arms, and fingers. We combine the complex scattering of laser light from blood with computational techniques found in computer science.
