In this Phase I project we developed the design for an optical sensor device that can measure tissue oxygenation at any location on the body, by detection of light reflected back from the tissue. The device also allows for resolution of oxygenation and hemoglobin concentrations within deep tissue up to depths of 2cm versus surface tissue. This device therefore avoids the inaccuracies due to peripheral vasocostriction, by measuring at non-peripheral locations and into deeper tissue. The device also has a greater capability for measuring oxygenation of specific physiological structures and systems. Extensive simulations and analyses demonstrate the feasibility of the device, provided for determination of an optimum design, and quantified the capabilities of the device. The design is a uniquely advanced concept which offers capabilities beyond all known commercial, prototype, and research techniques for optical measurement of tissue.
