IZMIR, Türkiye (AA) – Scientists in western Türkiye have designed a device to monitor the blood flow velocity in multiple vessels at once.

“It is possible to imagine and measure the vessels in different sizes and velocity at the same time thanks to this technology,” Serhat Tozburun, of the Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center, told Anadolu Agency.

Having developed the device that allows for 3D optical imaging by rapidly scanning laser wavelengths, Tozburun and his team received a patent in July for the technology, which improves on existing methods that do not account for varying flow velocities in blood vessels of different thickness.

“For this reason, long-term imaging is required, for example, to view or measure a very slow blood flow. Or, in the case of a rapid blood flow, such as in arteries, short-term imaging or measurement is required. So, two different imaging sessions are required,” the scientist explained, underlining that with their new device, doctors could speed up the diagnosis and treatment process

Tozburun returned from the US in 2016 to Türkiye, where he founded the Biophotonic and Optical Imaging Laboratory with the support of the Scientific and Technological Research Institution of Türkiye (TUBITAK).

There, he has been conducting research to develop next-generation biomedical technologies for diagnosis and treatment.
