    Abstract

    In medicine there are situations that require continuous bedside monitoring of perfusion and blood volume. Such a situation can occur when children are born prematurely. Those children have a high risk to develop a handicap, which is most likely caused by cerebral damage due to impaired brain perfusion. Monitoring cerebral perfusion can provide information for preventive treatment. In this thesis we have explored the potential of photoacoustics and laser Doppler flowmetry for measurement of changes in blood content and blood flow respectively.
