Abstract

This paper presents an optical fibre pressure and temperature sensor (OFPTS) system, which is adapted for use as a urodynamic pressure measurement system (UPS) for differential pressure measurement with temperature compensation. The OFTPS is based on a Fabry Perot interferometer (FPI), which acts as a pressure sensor and includes an embedded fibre Bragg grating (FBG) for temperature measurement. The sensor system is evaluated in a lower urinary tract (LUT) simulator, which simulates the bladder, rectum and detrusor muscle. The system was benchmarked against a commercially available urodynamic system, at the University Hospital Limerick (UHL) Urology Clinic. Both systems demonstrate a high correlation with a relative pressure variation of less than ±2.8cmH2O for abdominal and ±4cmH2O for vesical pressure. The repetitive measurement of the OFPTS system in the LUT simulator against the commercial system demonstrated the high repeatability. Furthermore, the low fabrication cost makes the OFPTS a potentially interesting instrument for urodynamic and other medical applications.
