New paper out on the influence of oversimplifying the head anatomy when using diffuse correlation spectroscopy to measure cerebral blood flow

In our latest work in Neurophotonics, Hongting Zhao determines the influence of oversimplifying the head geometry on brain blood flow estimated with diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS). Due to the noninvasive nature of  DCS measurements, light must pass through extracerebral layers (i.e., skull, scalp, and cerebral spinal fluid) before detection at the tissue surface. To minimize Read More…

New paper out on blood flow biomarkers in subarachnoid hemorrhage

Check out our latest paper in Frontiers in Neurology. One of the common complications of non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is secondary stroke known as delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). Intrathecal (IT) administration of nicardipine, a calcium channel blocker, upon detection of large-artery cerebral vasospasm holds promise as a treatment that reduces the incidence of DCI. However, Read More…
