Human Studies of CBF and Metabolism During Craniotomy
During craniotomy externally placed detectors over the skull are almost incompatible with the surgical procedure. The use of the Kety Schmidt procedure for measurement of global CBF and CMRO2 is therefore a possibility. Although this method is cumbersome it has the advantage that samples of blood for CBF and AVDO2 are withdrawn from the same vascular bed.
