A safe, low-cost and portable instrumentation for bedside time-resolved picosecond near infrared spectroscopy
Novel Optical Instrumentation for Biomedical Applications IV
Continuous wave Near InfraRed Spectroscopy (NIRS) has been used successfully in clinical environments for several years to detect cerebral activation thanks to oxymetry (i.e. absorption of photons by oxy-and deoxy-hemoglobin) measurement. The goal of our group is to build a clinically-adapted time-resolved NIRS setup i.e. a setup that is compact and robust enough to allow bedside measurements and that matches safety requirements with human patients applications. Indeed our group has alreadydoi:10.1364/ecbo.2009.7371_0c fatcat:okdkooyqibbd5jovbxmnoy5dlm
