Abstract

We used near-infrared spectroscopy to separate tissue scattering changes from changes in cerebral oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin and the redox state of cytochrome- c -oxidase. A separate term of the transport scattering coefficient (µs) was included in a modified Lambert–Beer equation. It is shown by diffusion equation analysis that there is a simple relationship between the differential path-length factor (Da) and its scattering equivalent (Ds) . The method was applied to cortical spreading depression (CSD) data recorded through the skulls of rats. Biphasic changes in µsof ±0.1mm-1were observed during CSD’s that spread with a velocity of ~5mm/min . The method proposed has the promise to permit monitoring of scattering changes noninvasively in humans during cortical activation or pathophysiological conditions.
