Microcirculation Imaging is the first handbook of its kind, introducing many different technical approaches for the visualization of microcirculation. Clearly structured throughout, this book is a must for every clinician and researcher relying on microcirculation imaging.
Author Professor Martin J. Leahy from the National University of Ireland, Galway, explores everything from basic research to medical applications. Microcirculation Imaging adopts a multidisciplinary approach drawing input from physicists, researchers and medical professionals.
Laser Doppler and laser Speckle, optical coherence tomography and photo-acoustic tomography are introduced as examples of technical approaches for the visualization of microcirculation included in Microcirculation Imaging.
