Noninvasive Optical Measurement of Critical Care Neonates
The purpose of this study is to determine whether reflections of light can be used to provide real-time pictures of blood vessel formation around infants' heads. This approach is called laser speckle imaging (LSI) developed at UCI Beckman Laser Institute.

Laser Speckle Imaging (LSI)
Device: Laser Speckle Imaging (LSI)
Other Name: Laser Speckle Imaging (LSI)
The researchers can use the LSI device to image superficial cerebral blood flow in the infant's head. The researchers can quantify blood flow and measured vessel diameter, versus actual diameter assessed with conventional digital camera imaging.
