Measuring Brain Oxygen in Babies

We aim to develop an instrument capable of continuous, noninvasive bedside monitoring of brain health and development.

Bedside NIRS equipment that, unlike commercial devices, will provide quantitative measures of cerebral blood volume, cerebral oxygen saturation, cerebral blood flow and cerebral oxygen consumption. Dr. Grant is working with the hospital's Division of Newborn Medicine and Maria Angela Franceschini of the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biological Imaging.
