Abstract
It has been known that speckle images observed for living bodies illuminated by laser light sometimes show fractal appearances. This has been utilized, for example, for tomographic imaging of the porcine arterial tissue. Fractality can also be seen in speckle images generated by the blood in the process of coagulation. A fractal dimension (FD) of the speckle image is, thus, expected to be a global marker of haemostasis, arteriosclerosis, and so on. In the present study, we experimentally investigate fractality of biospeckle pattern observed in coagulation process of horse blood.
