Based on the recent studies the prognosis of patients after cardiac arrest (CA) remains poor. Thus it is extremely important to understand fine mechanisms related to the influence of CA on the brain and Cerebral Blood Flow (CBF) during and after cardiac arrest. Recently our group introduced Transcranial Optical Vascular Imaging (TOVI) approach that combines laser speckle and dynamic fluorescent imaging. TOVI proved to be useful during various preclinical brain research applications. For example it allows imaging of brain blood vessels of a mouse in vivo through the intact cranium. Herein for the first time we present the use of TOVI during cardiac arrest. TOVI possibly could be a useful tool for preclinical studies of CBF during and after CA.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
