Paper Abstract

We propose a rapid imaging method to monitor the spatial distribution of total hemoglobin concentration (CHbT), the tissue oxygen saturation, and the scattering power b in the expression of μs’=aλ-b as the scattering parameters in cerebral cortex using a digital red-green-blue camera. In the method, the RGB-values are converted into the tristimulus values in CIEXYZ color space which is compatible with the common RGB working spaces. Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) for light transport in tissue is used to specify a relation among the tristimulus XYZ-values and the concentration of oxygenated hemoglobin, that of deoxygenated hemoglobin, and the scattering power b. In the present study, we performed sequential recordings of RGB images of in vivo exposed rat brain during the cortical spreading depolarization evoked by the topical application of KCl. Changes in the total hemoglobin concentration and the tissue oxygen saturation imply the temporary change in cerebral blood flow during CSD. Decrease in the scattering power b was observed before the profound increase in the total hemoglobin concentration, which is indicative of the reversible morphological changes in brain tissue during CSD. The results in this study indicate potential of the method to evaluate the pathophysiological conditions in brain tissue with a digital red-green-blue camera.
