> 9. Microcirculation imaging, Laser Speckle Contrast Imaging

Chairs: Irina Larina, Baylor College of medicine, Houston, USA (coordinator)

Valery Tuchin, Saratov State University, Saratov, Russia, Dan Zhu, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, Anne Humeau-Heurtier, Université d’Angers, France

This session is dedicated to recent advances and technological developments of optical technologies in investigation of dynamic biomedical processes through analysis of laser speckle fluctuations. The talks of the session are focused on:

-      new and improved imaging approaches based on contrast produced by speckle fluctuations

-      advances in computational approaches for speckle analysis of dynamic biological processes such as blood circulation, lymph flow and cilia dynamics

-      novel applications of speckle technologies in various areas of biomedicine including ophthalmology, cardiovascular pathologies, ciliopathies and developmental biology
