Paper Abstract

Crosstalk between oxy- and deoxy-haemoglobin observed in near-infrared topography is investigated. The light propagation in an adult head model is predicted by Monte Carlo simulation to obtain the change in intensity detected with source-detector pairs on the scalp caused by a focal absorption change in the brain. The topographic images of changes in oxy- and deoxy-haemoglobin are obtained from the changes in intensity detected with source-detector pairs on the scalp. The crosstalk depends on the relative position of the focal absorption change to source-detector pairs. The crosstalk is minimised when the focal absorption change is located below a measurement point that is the midpoint between a source and a detector. Appropriate selection of wavelength pair is effective to reduce the crosstalk in the topographic image.
