• . . . . ultimately the physician may be free of the tedious interpretation of monitors and images. as an alternative, he'll learn and experiment via his sufferer at once. donning optical-shutter spectacles and aiming a pulsed laser torch, he'll be ready to peer on the beating middle, research the move of a joint or the flexing of a muscle, press on suspect components to work out how the organs underneath reply, fee that drugs were properly swallowed or that an implant is savely in position, and so forth. A sufferer donning white cotton or nylon outfits that scatter yet not often take in mild, won't also have to undress . . . . •. David Jones, Nature (1990) 348:290 Optical imaging of the mind is a swiftly transforming into box of heterogenous innovations that has attracted significant curiosity lately because of a few theoretical merits compared to different mind imaging modalities: it makes use of non­ ionizing radiation, deals excessive spatial and temporal answer, and offers new different types of metabolic and useful details. From a pragmatic perspective it is crucial that bedside examinations look possible and that the implementations should be significantly less costly in comparison with competing suggestions. In October 1991, a symposium used to be held on the Eibsee close to Garmisch, Germany to collect the prime scientists during this new field.

Example text

Direct and continuous spectroscopic evaluation of cerebral oxygen saturation is possible (McCormick et al. 1991alb). Mixed oxyhemoglobin/hemoglobin transmission spectra can be recorded from the exposed and unexposed brain (Jobsis et al. 1977, Wray et al. 1988). These spectra are reducible to a qualitative measure of cerebral oxyhemoglobin, and such paradigms track qualitative changes in aggregate cerebral oxyhemoglobin and hemoglobin content of the cerebral vasculature over time. Quantitative measurement of cerebral oxyhemoglobin content from attenuation data requires that photon tissue path length be measured, but in situ measurement of photon path length for clinical monitoring is impractical at this time.
