Laser Doppler Flowmetry and Laser Speckle Contrast Imaging are applied usually for assessment of parameters of the cutaneous blood flow during thermoregulation. Alternatively, this work explores the feasibility of blood pulsation imaging under incoherent green illumination for measuring the response of human body on local thermal impact. The proposed technique allows assessment of the cutaneous blood flow changes during thermoregulation simultaneously in different areas of the body. The preliminary experiments show that the blood pulsation amplitude (BPA) is sufficiently reliable index, which could characterize the relative change of the cutaneous blood flow similarly to the parameter measured with the Laser Doppler Flowmetry technique. It is shown that BPA grows up proportionally to the skin temperature increase in the preliminary cooled finger, whilst it is in the steady state in another finger having the constant temperature. The rate of BPA increase is individual characteristic of a subject, which could serve as a parameter of the subject’s vasomotor reactivity on the temperature changes. High quality of visualized distribution of blood pulsations, good repeatability of the BPA, and revealed dependencies of its response on the skin-temperature change offer the prospect for development new system of studying microcirculation.
