Optical Fiber Spectroscopy Device for Noninvasively Measuring Chromophores in Biological Tissue
OHSU scientists developed a simple optical fiber probe spectrometer for nondestructive laparoscopic measurement of blood content and hemoglobin oxygen saturation in tissue microvasculature during surgeries. Fiber optic spectroscopy can be implemented with a small footprint (two 1-mm-diameter optical fibers placed 3 mm apart) and can avoid the dangers...
