Moritz Späth: Improving Vessel Diagnostics
Microcirculation describes the circulation of blood in the smallest vessels. The publication of Moritz Späth deals with the “Determination of the diameter of simulated human capillaries using shifted position‐diffuse reflectance imaging”. Using Monte-Carlo simulations, he showed that this non-invasive imaging technique is suitable for monitoring the state of microcirculation. This could improve the diagnosis of microcirculation associated diseases.
Recently, Moritz Späth also published on “The influence of the optical properties on the determination of capillary diameters” when using the non-invasive method of shifted position-diffuse reflectance imaging. On a theoretical level he showed that even under varying optical properties of the skin, the state of a microcirculatory disorder can be determined without the need of individual calibration.
He works at the Institute of Photonic Technologies with Michael Schmidt.
