The MGH/MIT/HMS Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging is
proud to announce a two-day course on Near-Infrared Spectroscopy and
Diffuse Optical Tomography (NIRS-DOT), an emerging imaging modality with
a wide array of potential applications. NIRS-DOT is noninvasive, employs
no ionizing radiation and is portable, thus offering practitioners a
means to monitor oxygenation and map brain activity at bedside.

The introductory course covers the fundamentals of this optical
technique and offers hands-on experience in its application. Course
topics include: an overview of the physics of Diffuse Optical Tomography
and imaging of the brain, NIRS-DOT instrumentation, safety issues and
the basics of experimental design (for mapping brain activity). The
course is geared toward end users in application areas such as clinical
monitoring and psychology research. Each day of the course includes a
hands-on workshop during which participants apply the concepts taught
during the day's seminars.
Course dates - November 18 & 19, 2004
Location - Charlestown, MA 
Cost - $500 per person, includes continental breakfast and one group
