Laser Doppler imaging has been widely used for the evaluation of cutaneous blood flow. We report on how the self-mixing interferometry configuration with a laser diode is explored for what is belived to be the first time to generate flow maps. The experiment was carried out by sensing the laser intensity power spectrum at each pixel as the laser was scanned over a model that mimics the properties of skin and circulating blood.
