Blood perfusion is the local, non-directional blood flow through living tissue. It is measured as the volumetric flow rate of blood per volume of tissue and a large range of perfusion values have been reported for human tissue (i.e. 0.002–0.5 ml/ml/s). This large range is thought to be due to measurement sensitivity, environmental factors, and tissue type and location.
