This study explains the work progressed in the research Project of the 2nd year of Medical physics and radiation science master’s degree course at the University Sains Malaysia. This research, entitled “Theoretical Study Using MATLAB program for Blood Flow Parameters in Forehand Skin Vascular Applying Laser Doppler Imaging”, has as initial target, the expansion of software and hardware settlement capable of being incorporated in tools for measuring blood flow or perfusion utilizing the Laser Doppler Imaging. In this study, the functional and theoretical rules are reviewed and explained. Two actions were done, one that utilizes and insert a specific mathematical equation on MATLAB program and another with an applying the values and check the validation of these equations for measuring and expect the blood flow or blood perfusion. Software (MATLAB program) routines to evaluate these achievements are also explained and discussed. This research study, in the scope of the 2nd year of Medical physics and radiation science master’s degree course it is relating to forehand skin vascular hypertension, since that’s too much significant region and where all the human and tool exchequer, currently obtained, let us to improve techniques and ways with a large possible of implementation. Thus, the project aims at developing mathematical equation to measure blood flow and perfusion in arterial microcirculation and to improve informatic applications that can be used as a graphic interface and as a results interpretation tool.
Key words: MATLAB Program, vascular hypertension, arterial microcirculation
