Invited paper (PDF): Optical methods in assessment of brain oxygenation and perfusion [abstract]

Adam Liebert is an Associated Professor at the Nalecz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering (IBBE) of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. His interests include tissue optics, biomedical measurements and biomedical imaging techniques. He received Ph.D. (1997) and D.Sc. (2005) in biomedical engineering from the IBBE. In years 2001-2004 he worked at the Physikalish-Technische Bundesanstalt in Berlin as a postdoctoral fellow on development of brain imaging technique based on time-resolved near infrared spectroscopy. Currently he is head of the Department of Biophysical Measurements and Imaging of the IBBE and Secretary of the Committee for Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences. His main area of interest is application of near infrared spectroscopy in tissue oxygenation assessment and development of brain perfusion evaluation methodology based on time-resolved measurement of diffusely reflected light during injection of optical contrast agent as well as detection of fluorescence of the exogeneous dye circulating in the tissue. He deals also with laser-doppler perfusion measurement and imaging, developed novel methods of laser-doppler signal processing and is involved in tests of potential applications of this technique.
