Laser Doppler imaging (LDI) is an imaging method that uses a laser beam to scan live tissue. When the laser light reaches the tissue, the moving blood cells generate doppler components in the reflected (backscattered) light. The light that comes back is detected using a photodiode that converts it into …
An imaging technique that is used to measure superficial blood flow in the skin.
A noninvasive, non-scanning optical imaging technique that provides full-field visualization of blood flow to the tissue being imaged, which provides information about tissue perfusion and the efficiency of disease treatment.
Light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) is a fluorescence microscopy technique with an intermediate-to-high optical resolution, but good optical sectioning capabilities and high speed. In contrast to epifluorescence microscopy only a thin slice (usually a few hundred nanometers to a few micrometers) of the sample is illuminated perpendicularly to the direction …
Light Sheet Microscopy is a special fluorescence microscopic technique in which only a thin layer in the sample is illuminated, typically a few micrometers. Compared to conventional fluorescence microscopy, this results in better resolution and significantly reduced background signal. In addition, negative effects due to bleaching or light-induced stress on …
A type of magnetic resonance imaging that uses a weaker magnet (less than or equal to 0.3 Tesla) than is used in conventional magnetic resonance imaging. This is typical of open MRI machines and office-based MRI units. [Definition Source: NCI]
