In this work we present and validate a wide-field method for the real-time mapping of tissue absorption, scattering and blood flow properties over wide regions of tissue (15 cm x 15 cm) with high temporal resolution (50 frames per second). We achieve this by applying Fourier Domain demodulation techniques to coherent spatial frequency domain imaging to extract optical properties and speckle flow index from a single snapshot. Applying this technique to forearm reactive hyperemia protocols demonstrates the ability to resolve intrinsic physiological signals such as the heart beat waveform and the buildup of deoxyhemoglobin associated with oxygen consumption.
