Development of Diffuse Optical Imaging Techniques for Assessment of Hypoxic-Ischaemic Brain Injury in Newborn Infants

Allocated Projects
Allocated in Academic year 2015-16

Optical imaging techniques are being developed to study blood flow and oxygenation in the brains of newborn infants, especially those with hypoxic-ischaemic injury – a major cause of permanent disability in very preterm infants. Optical methods offer a means of monitoring infants in intensive care, and of assisting development of therapies for preventing brain damage.
