Continuous quantitative local cerebral blood flow measurement. Calibration of thermal conductivity measurements by the hydrogen clearance method.


The capability of a miniaturized probe to measure local cerebral blood flow in a continuous and quantitative manner is described. The incorporation of thermal conductivity measurements using the isothermal principle with the hydrogen clearance method allows calibration of the thermal conductivity component in absolute terms. Evaluation of this system in 14… (More)
