Abstract

This paper details the development of a camera system that is sensitive to the Blood Oxygen Level Dependant (BOLD) signal for intraoperative delineation of function. The results to date show strong indications that the optical interrogation of this signal is possible in real-time and with minimal change to operating practices and the operating theatre environment.
