We assessed the reliability of handheld laser speckle contrast perfusion imaging by evaluating mounted/handheld measurement pairs operated on psoriasis lesions in three steps. First, we made a denoised perfusion map per measurement based on spatial alignment of raw speckle frames and temporal averaging of perfusion frames. Second, we used the measured on-surface speed information to compensate the movement-induced perfusion by extrapolation of the local perfusion values to the value corresponds to zero on-surface speed. Third, we compared mounted/handheld measurement pairs based on perfusion inhomogeneity and increased perilesional perfusion criteria independent of the movement artefact compensation mentioned in the second step. We conclude that after proper post-processing, handheld LSCI measurements can be as reliable as mounted measurements in terms of geometrical distorting, but with challenges to be overcome for correcting perfusion values.
