30 January 2014 In-vivo study of blood flow in capillaries using μPIV method
Author Affiliations +
A digital optical system for intravital capillaroscopy has been developed. It implements the particle image velocimetry (PIV) based approach for measurements of red blood cells velocity in individual capillary of human nailfold. We propose to use a digital real time stabilization technique for compensation of impact of involuntary movements of a finger on results of measurements. Image stabilization algorithm is based on correlation of feature tracking. The efficiency of designed image stabilization algorithm was experimentally demonstrated.
