Dynamic characteristics of retina vessels

Project description

The latest ophthalmological equipment makes it possible for the first time to do continuous measurements of blood vessels of the ocular fundus in vivo and noninvasively. Based on the analysis of the dynamics of the blood vessels diameter conclusions can be drawn about the auto regulation mechanisms that are lying behind. These are increasingly in the discussion with respect toglaucoma damage. With appropriate techniques the dynamic characteristics of the retina vessels can be detected. Of particular interest is especilly the variation of the parameters through provocation. Combined with the other measured variables an image shows about the regulating reserves of the auto regulation of the retina vessels.
