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.
