Near-infrared diffuse optical spectroscopies for measurement of deep tissue blood flow, oxygenation and metabolism

Applications in surgical rooms have shown that DCS-based techniques have high sensitivity to detect tissue hemodynamic changes in clinics, and it is expected that with more clinical applications, DCS technologies will emerge rapidly as the technique of choice for clinical investigation of diseases and treatment responses.

USE OF HYBRID DIFFUSE OPTICAL SPECTROSCOPIES IN CONTINUOUS MONITORING OF BLOOD FLOW, BLOOD OXYGENATION, AND OXYGEN CONSUMPTION RATE IN EXERCISING SKELETAL MUSCLE

A novel application of NIRS/DCS technology to simultaneously evaluate quantitative hemodynamic and metabolic parameters in exercising skeletal muscle has broad application to research and clinical assessment of disease, treatment evaluation, and sports medicine.

Blood flow measurement of human skeletal muscle during various exercise intensity using diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS)

DCS could detect the time-dependent increase of the blood flow response of the forearm muscle for continuous exercises, and the increase ratios of the mean blood flow through the exercise periods showed good correlation with the exercise intensities.
