Abstract

This paper presents preliminary results on the effect of contact pressure on bioimpedance measurements in an excised section of human colon tissue. The impedance measurements were performed with a small diameter probe suitable for in-vivo use, which is capable of measuring contact force. Force measurements are performed by fiber optic sensor which consisted of a Fiber Bragg Grating. The obtained results highlight the importance on limiting the applied pressure during bioimpedance measurements.
