Paper Abstract

We developed a three wavelength time-resolved spectroscopy system called the TRS-10 for use as a tissue oxygenation monitor. The TRS-10 achieved a higher data acquisition rate and a system miniaturization maintaining high sensitivity and time resolution. The TRS-10 consists of a three wavelength picosecond light pulser (PLP) with auto power control as a pulsed light source, a photomultiplier tube (PMT) having high speed and high sensitivity and miniaturized signal processing circuits for time-resolved measurement (CFD, TAC, A/D converter and histogram memory). The TRS-10 system was used to measure the time course of oxygen metabolism in a human forearm with a pneumatic cuff attached to occlude blood flow. Our system succeeded in accurately measuring concentrations of Oxy- (HbO2) and deoxyhemoglobin (Hb) in the human forearm based on diffusion theory by means of TRS data observation having an accumulation time of one second per point.
