Abstract

A critique of methods used to assess brain oxygenation and blood flow noninvasively is presented. Techniques for pulse oximetry, including the dual wavelength technique, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and positron emission tomography (PET), are discussed. Near-infrared (NIR) absorption by biological molecules and NIR assessment of brain metabolism and circulation are discussed. A pulsed light spectrophotometry system is proposed.
