Measurement of the Distribution of Optical Properties in Adult Human Muscle
The researcher can use Diffuse Optical spectroscopy technique that uses harmless levels of near-infrared light to probe the concentrations and states of important physiological molecules such as hemoglobin water and lipids in human muscle,.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Measurement of the Distribution of Optical Properties in Adult Human Muscle|
- Healthy Muscle [ Time Frame: upto 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||October 2004|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||July 2018|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||July 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Device: Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy
The researcher can monitor muscle physiology, for example during exercise or in response to external factors such as shock by Diffuse Optical spectroscopy technique.
The Diffuse Optical spectroscopy technique can determine significant changes in muscle, muscle structure, muscle tissues metabolism and hemodynamics.
