Abstract
We have non-invasively measured in vivo blood flow changes using photon correlation spectroscopy with a simple correlation diffusion model to study and quantify blood flow in the human arm during cuff ischemia. The method utilizes the Doppler broadening of light that arises in a multiply scattering dynamic media, and is also responsive to changes in absorption and scattering coefficients. Our measurements clearly show blood flow changes with cuff pressures, including the hyperemic overshoot after cuff release, that qualitatively agree with the physiological behavior of the cardiovascular system. In this paper, we present our method, results and discuss the clinical relevance of our findings.
