Abstract

Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a noninvasive technique to measure the tissue oxygenation in real time. This optical method has many advantages over the invasive analysis currently used for clinical tests. Among the possible applications of near-infrared oxymetry, we report three protocols (exercise, venous occlusion and tilting table) in conjunction with NIRS, and discuss their applicability in the diagnosis of peripheral vascular disease (PVD).
