Department of Neurosurgery, Tokyo Metropolitan Police Hospital, Japan
Neurosci Lett 256:49-52. 1998..In the epilepsy cases, the activated side agreed with the dominance determined by the Wada test. Our results demonstrate that NIRS is a feasible non-invasive alternative to the Wada test...
- Noninvasive cerebral blood volume measurement during seizures using multichannel near infrared spectroscopic topographyE Watanabe
Tokyo Metropolitan Police Hospital, Department of Neurosurgery, Japan
J Biomed Opt 5:287-90. 2000..The NIRS method can be applied to monitor the rCBV change continuously during seizures. Therefore, this method may be combined with ictal SPECT as one of the most reliable noninvasive methods of focus diagnosis...
