Paper Abstract

Using a near infrared (NIR) spectrophotometry, a compact instrument for monitoring the hemoglobin (Hb) oxygenation state in human brain was developed. Brian oxygen metabolism was non-invasively studied by simultaneous measurement of oxygenated Hb, deoxygnated Hb and total Hb content in rat and human head. After evaluating our method using anesthetized and artificially ventilated rats, this instrument was applied for clinical use, and was useful for the management of clinical patients. The same method was applied to develope the NIR computed tomography (CT). Human X-ray CT was modified for NIR-CT, and CT images were obtained using the back-projection (BP) method. NIR-CT could measure the oxygenation map of the tissues of anesthetized rats.
