Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The contamination of the signal corresponding to the blood volume change in the scalp is one of the serious problems in functional near infrared imaging and the multi-distance probe configuration has been used to reduce the contamination of the scalp signal. The head phantom mimicking the local absorption change in the gray matter and global absorption change in the scalp was measured by a functional near infrared spectroscopy system using the multi-distance probe configuration to obtain the topographic image of the absorption change in the phantom. The measurement using the multi-distance probe configuration can effectively reduce the contamination of the scalp signal during the functional near infrared imaging.
