UC Irvine researchers developed a portable, handheld device for dynamically measuring and visualizing blood flow.
Imaging blood flow in clinical environments with limited time and space
Researchers at the University of California, Irvine, created a handheld LSI device to measure and visualize the flow scattering particles such as red blood cells. They account for and correct motion-induced artifacts arising from the handheld nature of the device by incorporating a fiducial marker into the imaging protocol.
The inventors have developed a prototype handheld LSI device. They are in the experimental stage of testing the device stability. Different configurations are being explored for potential applications of the device.
