Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9965382A1] Spectrophotometrical apparatus for use in in-vivo conditions is provided. The apparatus includes a fibre-optics based device (11) having collecting fibres (11a) and emitting fibres (11b), computational apparatus and an NIR light source. The emitting fibre-optic (11a) emit NIR light and collecting fibre-optic (11b) are positioned to collect light reflected back from within a sample of tissue in-vivo. Selected parameters from computational analysis of the data received from the collecting fibre-optic are displayed in real-time to enable detection of the onset of, for example, ischaemia within a sample of soft tissue in-vivo.
