Vascular Optics 2019

3 December 2019


Organised by IPEM's Physiological Measurement Special Interest Group 

The volume of blood per unit time that serves a tissue mass or organ is a continuously varying physiological parameter that can be affected by many factors including disease.  Blood perfusion assessment in general can therefore be used to inform diagnosis, improve understanding of disease process and monitor the response to treatment.  Non-invasive, non-ionising optical methods are often well suited to vascular assessment and span multiple specialties and applications.  With advances in technology and a move towards a ‘connected lifestyle’ many of these techniques are no longer confined to within clinical or academic environments and are also utilised within home based monitoring systems and wearables.  

This meeting seeks to bring together the latest techniques and technologies that are being used in both clinical, research and commercial applications in order to better assess, diagnose and monitor the functions of the vascular system using optical methods.  It is aimed at bringing together clinicians, academics and industry that have an interest in using optical methods to visualise and assess blood flow and perfusion. 

Presentations would be welcomed from, but not limited to: photoplethysmography (PPG), optical coherence tomography, infra-red thermal imaging, laser Doppler techniques, 3D surface assessment, tissue viability and dermatology, all in the context of clinical, academic and wearable/home based monitoring applications.

Abstract submissions are invited from interested professionals in healthcare, industry and academia. If you would like to submit an abstract for this conference please follow the instructions on our Abstract submission page
