medical imaging system (laser speckle imaging)

objective: measure relative blood perfusion near skin

mLSI (mobile LSI)

concept: a portable LSI system for more convenient use in emergency (e.g. battle field, emergency vehicle)

overview image for mLSI system

mcLSI (multi-camera LSI)

objective: increase the field of view of LSI system

(b) Merged raw speckle image

merged_sfi

(c) Final SFI image from our prototype (higher value indicates faster blood flow)

mcLSI prototype configuration: mcLSI is composed of two sets of LSI imaging system (one USB camera, one laser source (ir laser) with diffuser, and one shutter to prevent interference to other system). The control board is used to synchronize the image acquisition and the shutter operation.
