Measuring intracranial pressure is necessary for the treatment of severe head injury but measurement systems are highly invasive and introduce risk of infection and complications. In this webinar hosted by the OSA Therapeutic Laser Applications Technical Group, Dr. Jana Kainerstorfer from Carnegie Mellon University will discuss a non-invasive alternative for quantifying intracranial pressure using measurements of cerebral blood flow (CBF) by diffuse correlation spectroscopy.
What You Will Learn:
• Principles and applications of diffuse reflectance spectroscopy for non-invasive measurements of intracranial pressure
Who Should Attend:
• Students, postdocs, scientists, and physicians interested in non-invasive diagnostics of brain encephalopathies involving changes in intracranial pressure, such as traumatic brain injury, brain infections and hydrocephalus
