An investigation into the role of the optical detection set-up in the recording of cardiac optical mapping signals: A Monte Carlo simulation study

Abstract:

Photon scattering is known to distort the fluorescence signals recorded from optically mapped cardiac tissue. However, the contribution of the parameters which define the optical detection set-up has not been assessed. In this study, Monte Carlo (MC) simulations of photon scattering within ventricular tissue are combined with a detailed model of a tandem-lens optical detection apparatus to characterise (i) the spatial origin upon emission of photons recorded in voltage-sensitive fluorescence ...
