Objective: Current intraoperative monitoring techniques lack adequate surveillance of cerebral blood flow (CBF). Laser Speckle Imaging (LSI) can be used for non-invasive and direct assessment of cortical perfusion. The purpose of this study was to establish precision rates (positive and negative predictive[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
