Abstract
Light scattering in living tissues is mainly caused by subcellular particles like mitochondria. The size of mitochondria changes according to differences in the functional status. Therefore light scattering should be a useful technique for monitoring the functional state in tissues. We investigated functional parameters in our model of the isolated perfused rat liver. For the measurements of light scattering we used the EMPHO SSK Oxyscan. Backscattered light from tissue is shown in 3D images. We found an interesting relation between structures of the liver and the patterns of the relating 3D images. In addition, our underlying spectra show the redox state of cytochromes. This new method of tissue imaging should give the opportunity of new insights into liver function.
