Abstract
Noninvasive diffuse IR transmission spectroscopy is used to measure the attenuation of hemoglobin in the human cerebrovasculature. Experimental data demonstrating the intracranial, cerebrovascular source of the IR signal is presented. An algorithm to quantify per-cent hemoglobin oxygen saturation in the brain from these transmission spectra is outlined. The spectroscopic cerebrovascular hemoglobin saturation measured correlates well with the best clinical reference measurement of brain hemoglobin saturation (n equals 68, r equals 0.74, s equals 3.5), and IR spectroscopy is more sensitive to reduced brain oxygen than analogue or processed electroencephalography (EEG) data (p < .05).
