Laser speckle contrast analysis (LASCA) – a non-invasive tool for intraoperative assessment of cortical tissue perfusion, CO2 reactivity and cerebral autoregulation

Nils Hecht, Johannes Woitzik, Peter Horn & Peter Vajkoczy
Objective: Recently, Laser Speckle Contrast Analysis (LASCA) has been introduced as a novel imaging tool for non-invasive intraoperative assessment of cortical cerebral blood flow (CBF). The aim of the present study was to assess, whether next to perfusion, LASCA is also suitable for intraoperative [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
