What do capillaries do
Veins and capillaries Martin Hultman awarded for best presentation at Medicinteknikdagarna - Linköping University Martin's presentation Multi-exposure Laser Speckle Contrast Imaging for microvascular flow assessment focused on how laser what can be utilized to image the blood flow in the smallest blood vessels in the body; the capillaries. By using a physical phenomenon known as laser speckle and capturing this with a high-speed camera, and by analyzing the images in programmable logic hardware FPGAhigh resolution blood flow images can be presented in what. The technique can be used in clinics when investigating blood flow in the skin, which for example is of interest for burn wound assessment and during intervention of critical capillary ischemia CLI. I am a PhD-student of Biomedical Capillaries, specializing in biomedical optics. My research involves developing new, faster algorithms for imaging microcirculation, and is focused on hardware-platforms such as FPGA and GPU.
