Advances in near-infrared spectroscopy to study the brain of the preterm and term neonate


Wolf, M; Greisen, G (2009). Advances in near-infrared spectroscopy to study the brain of the preterm and term neonate. Clinics in Perinatology, 36(4):807-834.

Abstract

This article reviews tissue oximetry and imaging to study the preterm and newborn infant brain by near-infrared spectroscopy. These two technologies are now advanced; nearly 100 reports on their use in newborn infants have been published, and commercial instruments are available. The precision of oximetry, however, is a limitation for its clinical use of assessing cerebral oxygenation. Imaging of brain function needs very well defined protocols for sensory stimulation as well as signal analysis to provide meaningful results.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
