Jobs and Internships

The Laboratory of Biomedical Optics conducts research on development of new, unique non-invasive methods for cerebral oxygenation measurements with the use of a near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), in particular a time-resolved diffuse reflectance measurement technique.

Project Description

The Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) technique allows to assess the tissue oxygenation by analysis of attenuation of light penetrating in the tissue at several wavelengths. Utilization of spectral properties of the oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin leads to assessment of changes in the tissue oxygenation. Most advanced approach to NIRS technique – time domain NIRS (TD-NIRS) is based on emission of ultra-short (picosecond) light pulses and evaluation of pulse broadening during its propagation through the investigated tissue. Application of this technique allows for depth-resolved evaluation of changes of oxygenation and perfusion in the tissue.

DCS is based on similar physical principles as NIRS and advantages such as noninvasiveness due to its ability to penetrate tissues by low power light but it provides a direct measure of so-called blood flow index (BFI). In practice, the intensity autocorrelation function is measured in the distance of about 3 cm from source to detector. Fast decay of the autocorrelation function indicates fast blood flow under the fiberoptic probe, while slow decay reflects slow or impaired blood flow.

In opposite to TD-NIRS, which is already applied for numerous clinical and non-clinical application, time-domain DCS (TD-DCS) is, so far, tested only in laboratories and ways of measurement and algorithms of analysis of the signals are still under development. Nevertheless, the clinical application of this method leads to important information about brain cortex perfusion separated from extracerebral contamination. Research in the planned two-year project will concern, among other things, development of measurement methodology and analysis of data obtained with this method and comparison with the reference modality which is ASL-MRI (magnetic MRI technique). The main scientific hypothesis for the proposed project are:

Tasks description:

The goal of this project is to develop a method that allows invasive measurements using near infrared spectroscopy.

The advantage of invasive measurements is the potential to reduce the effect of an influence of extracerebral layers on the measurement results and thus on accuracy in estimation of brain physiological parameters, such as tissue saturation, cerebral autoregulation, changes in hemoglobin concentration. Due to the invasive nature of the measurement, these tests can only be carried out in intensive care units, where invasive probes are used to monitor intracranial pressure [2] or oxygen partial pressure (PtiO2). The proposed method assumes the use of existing, clinically certified measuring probes.

The work will involve development of the measurement method and then its verification in animal model and in-vivo tests in the intensive care unit of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. The analysis of measurement results assumes the determination of tissue saturation, critical closing pressure. Furthermore, the optical signals will be correlated with intracranial pressure. The results will be compared between the ones obtained in invasive and non-invasive way.
