In vivo spectroscopy monitoring of the Spinal Cord: a practical approach on a big animal model

Share

1st virtual seminar of the Quebec IEEE CAS/EMB Chapter:

Spectroscopy is a powerful tool for carrying non-invasive chemical composition analysis. Applied to the biomedical field, this technique provides a suitable method for medical imaging. From fingertip devices for bedside monitoring to smart-watches for fitness applications, tissue oximetry is one of the most common implementation on continuous monitoring using spectroscopy. In this talk, we will explore its use for functional monitoring applied to the Spinal Cord. I will share my approach on the big animal toward the conception of a device for in vivo monitoring and the many steps on the way.

Abstract
Spectroscopy is a powerful tool for carrying non-invasive chemical composition analysis. Applied to the biomedical field, this technique provides a suitable method for medical imaging.

In this talk, we will explore its use for functional monitoring applied to the Spinal Cord. I will share my approach on the big animal toward the conception of a device for in vivo monitoring and the many steps on the way.
