Objectives: Real-time noninvasive monitoring of cerebral blood flow (CBF) during surgery is key to reducing mortality rates associated with adult cardiac surgeries requiring hypothermic circulatory arrest (HCA). We explored a method to monitor cerebral blood flow during different brain protection techniques using diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS), a noninvasive optical technique which, combined with frequency-domain near-infrared spectroscopy (FDNIRS), also provides a measure of oxygen metabolism.
