Our laboratory is currently focused on improving clinical outcomes in pediatric patients at high-risk for brain injury. We study the brain using 2 novel optical techniques known as diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS) and frequency domain near-infrared spectroscopy (FDNIRS). When combined, these non-invasive optical techniques can be used to quantify cerebral oxygenation, blood volume, blood flow, and oxygen metabolism. The clinical translation of these technologies holds great potential to elucidate warning signs of brain damage, aid in therapeutic monitoring, and initiate early rehabilitative strategies.
