Measures of Small-Vessel Blood

Apaeros also has the added capability to obtain data which can be used to measure small-vessel blood flow. Through a combination of imaging, instrument optimization and third-party post-processing software, quantitative measures can be made.

​While stopping the horizontal scan over a blood vessel, blood velocity can be measured by tracking erythrocytes moving across a scanning line. The steeper the slope, the slower the erythrocyte. This has allowed researchers to produce a blood velocity profile for retinal vessels.

Slope is inversely proportional to velocity

​​​Motion Contrast Imaging

   Apaeros also has the added capability to obtain data which can be used to visualize small-vessel blood flow. Through a combination of imaging and BMC post-processing software, qualitative measurements can be observed.
   Using the standard deviation of a series of images reveals features that are otherwise not detectable using singular images.  With this technique, small vessel blood flow detection is enhanced.
