In this paper, we investigate the possibility of applying the effect of a reversible change in the diameter of a blood vessel caused by laser radiation as a functional test of a microcirculatory system. For this purpose, we combine this effect with the method of micro-PIV (particle image velocimetry), which provides information on both the dynamics of blood flow in neighboring segments and the changes in their diameters.
