Technion develops non-invasive flow monitor:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A team of researchers at Technion, the Israeli Institute of Technology in Haifa, has developed a harmless, non-invasive method for quantitative assessment of skin blood-flow. The new technique uses the temperature increase of a patch of thermally insulated skin to calculate flow for evaluating pathological, micro-circulatory changes in hypertension and diabetes for monitoring medical treatments such as drugs or radiotherapy. Most methods of measuring skin blood-flow provide relative information and in the cases of hydrogen and radioactive clearance are invasive and hazardous.
