Effect of static scatterers in laser speckle contrast imaging: an experimental study on correlation and contrast. Phys Med Biol. 2017 Dec 05;: Authors: Vaz PG, Humeau-Heurtier A, Figueiras E, Correia C, Cardoso JMR Abstract Laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI) is a non-invasive microvascular blood flow assessment technique with good temporal and spatial resolutions. Most LSCI systems, including commercials devices, can only perform qualitative blood flow evaluation which is a major limitation of this technique. There are several factors that prevent LSCI to be a quantitative technique. Among these factors we can highlight the effect of static scatterers. The goal of this work was to study the influence of different static and dynamic scatterers concentrations on laser speckle correlation and contrast. In order to achieve this, a laser speckle prototype was developed and tested using an optical phantom with different concentrations of static and dynamic scatterers. It has been found that the laser speckle correlation can be used to estimate the relative concentration of static/dynamic scatterers within a sample. Moreover, the speckle correlation proved to be independent of the dynamic scatterers velocity which is a fundamental characteristic to be used as contrast correction method.

In cattle, clinical presentations and outcomes of bovine theileriosis are closely correlated with the causative Theileria spp. Thus, accurate detection and discrimination of Theileria spp. are essential for epidemiological studies and for provision of ...

JSRV infection is usually detected post-mortem by macroscopic and histological examination of lungs for lesions of OPA. Subsequently, the presence of JSRV may be confirmed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on tumour tissue. Our goal was to d...

But, lacking of knowledge is the evaluation on metabolic organs. To test the effect of methionine deficiency on the kidney, we assessed the apoptosis and the cell cycle of kidney induced by methionine deficiency by the methods of TdT-mediated dUTP Nick-End Labeling (TUNEL), flow cytometry (FCM), quanti...

Here, we present a one-year longitudinal study of fecal shedding of E. coli O157. E. coli O157 obtained from recto-anal mucosal samples were characterized by multiplex PCR. The E. coli O157 prevalence ranged from 0.84% in July ...
