Synthetic exposure: a simplified and accurate acquisition scheme for multiple exposure speckle imaging of blood flow

Abstract

Speckle contrast imaging is an established technique to obtain relative blood maps over wide field of views. Currently, its most accurate implementation relies on the acquisition of raw speckle images at different exposure times but requires modulation of a laser pulse in duration and intensity and precise synchronization with camera. This complex instrumentation has limited the use of multiple exposure speckle imaging. We evaluate here a simplified approach based on synthetic exposure images created from the sum of successive frames acquired with a 1 ms exposure time. Both methods have been applied to evaluate controlled flows in micro-channels. The contribution of noises to the speckle contrast have been quantified and compared. Dark, readout and shot noise contributions to the total contrast remains constant for modulated exposure, while all these contributions decrease with increasing exposure time for synthetic exposure. The relative contribution of noises to speckle contrast depends on the level of illumination, the exposure time and the flows that are imaged. Guidelines for accurate flow measurements in the synthetic exposure acquisition scheme are provided. The synthetic exposure method is simple to implement and should facilitate the translation of multiple exposure speckle imaging to clinical setups .
