Intramural spatial variation of optical tissue properties measured with fluorescence microsphere images of porcine cardiac tissue.

Abstract:

This proceeding studies the optical fluorescence images of a porcine heart filled with microspheres of two colors, carmine and red. A significant difference in the total optical tissue attenuation coefficient was observed between excitation and emission for both carmine (excitation - 13+/-4(1/mm) and emission - 9.4+/-3(1/mm)) and red (excitation -29+/-5(1/mm) and emission - 25+/-5(1/mm)), indicating that optical tissue properties can change significantly for a small change in light wavelength...
