Near Infrared Spectroscopy for Assessment of Depression
“Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) for Assessment of Depression”
Develop a NIRSIT testing protocol that can be administered in the diagnostic setting and reliably distinguishes the symptoms and severity of depression, with the help of repeated measure (up to five visits per subject) comparison of patients being treated for Major Depressive Disorder with control, non-depressed subjects.
Device - NIRSIT
NIRSIT is a device that utilizes Near Infrared Spectroscopy to provide a non-invasive measurement of frontal lobe blood oxygenation over time.
