A talk by Knut Kvernebo at The Big Sick 2023 conference. Kindly shared with permission.
See the TBS23 landing page for the programme and full set of talks.
The non-invasive ODIN concept (oxygen delivery index) uses in vivo Computer Assisted Microscopy (CAM) and Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) to collect frames, films and spectra from tissue volumes of ≈0.1mm3 in the skin or conjunctiva of the eye. Proprietary algorithms are used to quantify Functional capillary density (FCD), capillary flow velocities (CFV) and microvascular oxygen saturation (SmvO2). The results give a non-invasive measure of tissue oxygen availability and of microvascular function. Examples of proof-of-concept studies will be given.
Until we have final edits ready the video below is straight from the livestream. Expect a few audio issues and other glitches here and there.
