Abstract
Both laser Doppler perfusion monitoring (LDPM) and imaging (LDPI) are versatile methods for investigation of the microcirculation of the skin and other organs. Even after about 30 years of use, true everyday clinical applications are however, still sparse with the possible exception of burn depth assessment and LDP has to be regarded as a laboratory rather than a clinical tool. The principles of laser Doppler perfusion monitoring and imaging and its evolution as a research and clinical tool are addressed in this paper.
