Brief Summary:
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 study device is called laser speckle imaging.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Signs and Symptoms Device: Laser Speckle Imaging

Detailed Description:
The researchers can use the laser speckle imaging 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.

Study Type : Observational

Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Noninvasive Optical Measurement of Critical Care Neonates
Study Start Date : May 2010
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 2012
