技术领域 FIELD

[0005] 本发明涉及用于执行对一个或者多个生理参数的实时和/或接近实时的评估和监测的超光谱或多光谱成像系统和设备。 [0005] The present invention relates to the implementation of the one or more physiological parameters in real-time and / or near-real-time assessment and monitoring of hyperspectral or multispectral imaging systems and equipment. 本发明还涉及分析超光谱和多光谱数据以在例如休克和濒临休克、血容量过低、血液动力学功能障碍、生理功能紊乱、脱水和体温过低中提供具体的诊断和治疗选项。 The present invention also relates to analyzing hyperspectral and multispectral data to the verge e.g. shock and shock, hypovolemia, hemodynamic dysfunction, physiological dysfunction, dehydration and hypothermia provide specific diagnostic and therapeutic options.


[0006] 对不管何种病源学的新陈代谢休克的早期检测对于各种民事和军事医疗环境是至关重要的。 [0006] No matter what kind of early detection of the etiology of metabolic shock for a variety of civilian and military medical environment is essential. 急性出血和随后的循环衰竭(休克)占战场上和前线手术台(forwardoperating table)的死亡人数的约50%,该统计数字自从第一次世界大战以来一直相对保持不变。 Acute hemorrhage and subsequent circulatory collapse (shock) accounted for on the battlefield and frontline operating table (forwardoperating table) of about 50% of deaths, the statistics since the First World War has been relatively unchanged. 此外,出血在死于受伤的受伤士兵的约30%中是主要的死亡原因。 In addition, the bleeding is the leading cause of death in about 30 percent of the wounded soldiers died of injuries in. 类似地,在民事领域,无控制出血占外伤引起的早期手术死亡的高达82%。 Similarly, in the civil sphere, uncontrolled bleeding accounts for early surgical trauma caused by the death of up to 82%. 但是,如果通过外科手术稳定外伤病人,则在战争人员伤亡中的死亡率下降到2%到4%。 However, if the surgical trauma patient stable, the mortality rate in the war casualties in drops to 2% to 4%. 因此显然,提供对于休克的早期诊断的能力显著降低了民事和军事环境中与休克相关的死亡率和发病率。 Clearly therefore, the ability to provide for the early diagnosis of shock were significantly reduced in both civil and military environments with shock-related mortality and morbidity.

[0007] 出血性休克一般由血压过低的程度、非特异性征候和主观症状(诸如由于失血而发展的皮肤湿冷、脸色苍白、脉搏弱且浅、不稳定的生命迹象以及精神消退)来确定。 [0007] Generally hemorrhagic shock by low blood pressure level, non-specific signs and subjective symptoms (such as blood loss due to the development of skin clammy, pale, weak pulse and shallow, unstable signs of life and mental regression) to determine. 对于其它类型的休克可以观察到类似的症状。 For other types of shock similar symptoms can be observed. 休克的影响为供给和需求之间的不匹配,导致各种组织中的细胞代谢改变。 Impact shock of mismatch between supply and demand, leading to metabolic changes in the cells of various tissues. 所有这些是循环不足以满足代谢需求所导致的。 All of these are not sufficient to meet the metabolic needs of the cycle caused.

[0008] 大家清楚的是,在过了某一点之后,休克变为不可逆的。 [0008] make it clear that, after a certain point in the past, becomes irreversible shock. 对于军事应用,特别是在战场中,识别那些期待自然复原的士兵以及那些应该被治疗的士兵是极其有用的。 For military applications, especially in the battlefield, the soldiers look forward to identify those natural recovery and treatment of those soldiers should be extremely useful. 对于在各种人体和动物模型中预测濒临血液动力学代偿失调和判定休克的不可逆性的标准的描绘已经作出了重大的努力。 For a variety of human and animal models to predict the verge of hemodynamic decompensation and determine irreversible shock depict standard has made a major effort. 类似地,能够用于评估其它损伤、受到化学或生物试剂的作用、虚脱、脱水、营养状态、精神或情感紧张水平、药剂、受到诸如一氧化碳的毒性剂的作用的信息在战场和民事环境中都将是有用的。 Similarly, can be used to evaluate other damage, by the action of chemical or biological agents, exhaustion, dehydration, nutritional status, mental or emotional tension level, Pharmacy, by the action of toxic agents such as carbon monoxide information on the battlefield and civilian environments are would be useful.

[0009] 适当的治疗类选法和诊断对于潜在的生命救助治疗对策的适当应用是十分关键的。 [0009] appropriate triage and diagnosis for the proper application of potentially life-saving treatment strategy is crucial. 在受到化学或者生物作用方面,快速和准确地评估受伤或者受影响的个体的血液动力学状态将是至关重要的又是困难的。 In subjected to a chemical or biological role, rapid and accurate assessment of the injured or affected hemodynamic status of an individual will be critical and difficult. 笨重的化学生物毒剂(CBW)个人防护装备可能阻碍医疗人员或者急救者(firstresponder)对于同样可能穿着CBW装备的伤员进行标准评估所需的接触。 Bulky chemical and biological agents (CBW) personal protective equipment may hinder or emergency medical personnel who (firstresponder) for the same equipment may be wearing CBW wounded criteria for assessing the required contact. 获取脉搏或者测量血压可能是不可能的。 Get pulse or blood pressure measurement may not be possible. 与可能受污染的个体接触的任何装置也可能被污染,并且在没有繁重的清洁措施或者一次性遮盖物的情况下可能不能被再利用。 Any apparatus may be contaminated with the individual contact may also be contaminated and may not be reused without onerous cleansing measures or disposable covering the case. 因此,发展和使用远程感测技术以在这样的环境中提供生理和血液动力学评估,将是非常有利的。 Therefore, the development and use of remote sensing technology to provide physiologic and hemodynamic assessment in such an environment, it will be very beneficial. 为了最大化的实用性,这样的技术将提供能给出接近实时的信息的手持、耐用并且可随时使用的系统。 In order to maximize the usefulness of such a technology will provide near real-time information can be given a handheld, durable and can be used at any time of the system. 其将要求最小的操作者技能,并且将可由穿着CBW服装的终端使用者操作。 It will require a minimum of operator skill, and will be wearing clothing CBW end-user operations.

[0010] 深度酸毒症、碱缺乏或者碱缺乏的变化率已经都被与不可存活性相关联,但是已经公知的是,这些发生在休克进展的后期。 [0010] Depth acidosis, alkali lack or absence of a base rate of change has been associated with both non-viable phase, but is well known that these shock occurs in the late progression. 此外,到目前为止,对这些参数的评估需要血液样品和实验设备,这限制了这类测试对于急救者的使用。 In addition, to date, the assessment of these parameters require a blood sample and laboratory equipment, which limits the type of testing used for first aid. 其它参数,诸如深度血压过低或者严重心搏徐缓的开始或者其它节律障碍,通常在紧接末期征兆之前的休克中可以被观察至IJ,但是不能可靠地提供足够预先的通知以允许成功的介入。 Other parameters, such as the depth of hypotension or severe bradycardia or other rhythm disorders start, usually immediately before the end of the sign can be observed shock to IJ, but not reliably provide sufficient advance notice to allow for successful intervention . 更轻度的血压过低或者节律紊乱可能与存活或者死亡相关,不能提供预兆信息。 More mild hypotension or rhythm disturbances may or death associated with survival, can not provide prognostic information. 因此,一直存在对于如下监测设备的需要,该监测设备提供关于病人对于休克的反应的可能后果的更早信息。 Therefore, there has been a need for the following monitoring equipment, monitoring equipment that provides information about the patient's earlier response to the shock of possible consequences.

[0011] 因为血压过低和氧气传输减小的表现反应了出血性休克的过程中的晚期征兆,因此至关重要的是,确定在血量损失的最早时间段期间改变的生理信号,以提供对于休克严重性的准确评估。 [0011] because of low blood pressure and reduced oxygen transfer performance reflects the process of hemorrhagic shock in the late symptom, it is essential that during the earliest period of time to determine the amount of blood loss altered physiological signals to provide For an accurate assessment of the severity of shock. 在休克发展中的共同特性是与血液流量(心输出量)减小相关的到组织的氧传输不足(D02)或者代谢改变(减小的pH值或者碱过量)。 Common features in the development of shock with blood flow (cardiac output) decreases related to the organization's lack of oxygen transport (D02) or metabolic changes (decreasing pH value or base excess). 增大的心输出量和D02与存活密切相关,而无法稳定心输出量和D02与死亡高度相关。 Increased cardiac output and D02 and survival are closely related, but can not stabilize cardiac output and D02 highly correlated with death. 因此,包括某些氧传输的指标(例如,心搏量,心输出量)的手段代表了较之目前用于此目的的测量手段更好的用于循环性休克的早期预测的工具。 Therefore, including the indicators (e.g., stroke volume, cardiac output) of some oxygen transmission means represent the current earlier than the means for measuring for this purpose circulatory shock better predictive tool.


[0012] 本发明克服了与现有方案和设计相关的问题和缺点,并且提供了新的工具和方法,所述工具和方法用于评估休克受害者或者其它需要实时或者接近实时的生理评估的病人的组织氧饱和度、氧输送和氧提取以及组织水合水平。 [0012] The present invention overcomes the existing programs and design-related problems and shortcomings, and to provide new tools and methods, the tools and methods used to assess the need for shock victims or other real-time or near real-time physiological assessment tissue oxygen saturation of a patient's oxygen delivery and oxygen extraction and tissue hydration levels. 该技术利用了通过超光谱成像的局部组织评估,以提供关于全身生理和疾病状态的信息。 The technology uses a hyperspectral imaging by local organizational assessment, in order to provide information on the general physiological and disease states.

[0013] 因此,本发明涉及超光谱和多光谱成像系统、设备和方法,其用于一个或者多个生理参数的实时或者接近实时的评估和监测,所述生理参数包括氧合血红素、脱氧血红素、水含量、总血红素和氧饱和度,其按照本文所述地被分析时,提供代谢和生理状况,诸如休克的出现或者评价、复生的充分性或者生存的可能性。 [0013] Accordingly, the present invention relates to multi-spectral and hyper-spectral imaging system, apparatus and method for one or more physiological parameters of real-time or near real-time assessment and monitoring of the physiological parameter comprises oxyhemoglobin, deoxycholic hemoglobin, water content, total hemoglobin and oxygen saturation, the time to be analyzed in accordance with the herein provide metabolic and physiological conditions, such as shock or evaluation occurs, the likelihood of the adequacy of resuscitation or survival. 从HSI数据得到的具体诊断包括休克,血容量过低,血液动力学障碍,生理紊乱,休克或濒临休克状态(包括括出血性休克、血容量过低休克、败血性休克、心原性休克、神经性休克、烧伤休克的休克或者濒临休克)、脱水和体温下降。 HSI data obtained from a specific diagnosis, including shock, hypovolemia, hemodynamic disorders, physical disorders, shock, or on the verge of a state of shock (including including hemorrhagic shock, hypovolemia shock, septic shock, cardiogenic shock, neurogenic shock, burns, or on the verge of shock shock shock), dehydration and hypothermia.

[0039] 图11表明MHSI氧合血色素(OxyHb)揭示了作为病人可存活性的指示的循环模式的变化。 [0039] Figure 11 shows MHSI hemoglobin oxygenation (OxyHb) reveals the change as an indication of patient survivability circulation patterns. OxyHb图像示出了在动物休克实验的过程中的变化:左侧的是基线处(在最初出血之前),中间的是在休克期间(在最初出血之后62分钟),右侧的是在复生后平衡态(在最初出血之后147分钟)。 OxyHb images shows the change in the course of animal experiments in shock: the left side is at baseline (prior to the initial bleeding), is in the middle after resuscitation during shock (62 minutes after the initial bleeding), the right side is equilibrium (at 147 minutes after the initial bleeding). 其它的猪表明了在复生后基线模式的完全恢复。 Other pigs showed a complete recovery after resuscitation baseline model.

[0040] 图12表明MHSI ShsiO2揭示了作为病人可存活性的指示的循环模式的变化。 [0040] Figure 12 shows the change MHSI ShsiO2 reveal patient survivability as an indication of circulation patterns. ShsiO2的基线(左侧图)与休克图像(右侧图)的比较示出了“羽毛状”图案的发展。 ShsiO2 baseline (left panel) and shock image (right image) shows a comparison of the development of "feathery" pattern. 这类图案在许多或者在此过程中死亡或者针对测试过程没有显现出强劲恢复的动物受试者中发展,并且看起来表明获得不利后果的更大可能性。 In many such patterns or death in the process or for the testing process does not show a strong recovery in the development of animal subjects, and it seems that show the possibility of obtaining a greater adverse consequences.

[0041] 图13示出了对于每一个时间步长的作为时间的函数的生理和超光谱参数的平均值,同时还示出了标准差。 [0041] Figure 13 shows a long and hyperspectral physiological parameters as a function of time of the average value for each time step, and also shows the standard deviation. 心率和血压示于左侧两个图中。 Heart rate and blood pressure are shown in the left side of both figures. 利用平均、分布、斑点和时域偏移方法得到的结果被示于右侧的图中。 Using the average, distribution, and the results of the spot obtained in the time domain migration is shown in Figure on the right. 对照受试者和出血受试者分别由蓝色和黑色示出。 Bleeding control subjects and the subjects were shown by the blue and black.

[0044] 光谱学已经被用于检测各种组织中的代谢状态。 [0044] spectroscopy has been used to detect a variety of tissue metabolic status. 例如,光谱分析方法被结合在脉搏血氧计中,脉搏血氧计利用不同的氧合-和脱氧血红素的吸收带来估算全身动脉氧饱和度。 For example, spectral methods are combined in a pulse oximeter, pulse oximeter using different oxygenation - and deoxy-hemoglobin absorption bring the estimated systemic arterial oxygen saturation. 但是,由脉搏血氧计提供的测量不足以作为诊断或者监测休克的方法。 However, measurements provided by the pulse oximeter is not sufficient as a diagnostic or monitoring shock approach. 虽然脉搏血氧计可以提供动脉氧饱和度的点测量,但是其不能提供对于总血红素或者组织氧提取或者组织水合的测量。 Although the pulse oximeter can provide some measure arterial oxygen saturation, but it can not provide the total heme or tissue oxygen extraction or organization hydration measurements. 因此,脉搏血氧计仅仅提供对与休克相关的生理状态和血液动力学条件进行评价所必须的信息中的一部分。 Thus, the pulse oximeter provides only for physiological state associated with shock and hemodynamic conditions of the information necessary for the evaluation part. 因为总血红素的降低或者氧传输和氧提取之间的失配或者皮肤循环模式承载了重要信息并且可能是重要的警告信号,所以这是具有重要影响的。 Because skin circulation mode mismatch or reduce or oxygen transport and oxygen extraction between total hemoglobin carries important information and may be important warning signal, so this is an important influence. 脉搏血氧计所得到的动脉氧饱和度实际上提供了更多关于肺部而不是循环功能信息,并且动脉饱和度可以被保持直到深度休克晚期,尤其是如果病人一直吸取高浓度氧的话。 Arterial oxygen saturation, the pulse oximeter obtained actually provides more information about the lungs rather than the circulation of information, and the arterial saturation depth can be maintained until late shock, especially if the patient has a high concentration of oxygen, then draw.

[0045] 确定循环和/或到组织的灌注的充分性另一个重要参数是组织的氧提取。 [0045] Another important parameter to determine the adequacy of the circulation and / or tissue perfusion to tissue oxygen extraction. 通过记录氧合血红素和脱氧血红素两者的信息并通过使用其来(分别)报告关于氧传输和氧提取两者的信息,医学超光谱成像(MHSI-在此本领域技术人员将其理解为是指医学多光谱成像或者超光谱成像,或者医学多光谱和超光谱成像两者)报告组织代谢和组织灌注的充分性,以维持组织健康和生存能力。 By recording both oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin information by using it to (respectively) report extracting information about the transmission of both oxygen and oxygen, medical hyperspectral imaging (MHSI- skilled in this art will understand it to mean medical multispectral imaging or hyperspectral imaging, or medical multispectral and hyperspectral imaging both) Adequacy Report tissue metabolism and tissue perfusion to maintain the health and viability of the organization. 利用两项信息,由MHSI数据计算出的组织OxyHb和DeoxyHb血红素水平,可以传递关于组织氧饱和度(ShsiO2)和总血红素的信息。 Use two pieces of information, data calculated by MHSI organization OxyHb and DeoxyHb heme levels, you can pass information on tissue oxygen saturation (ShsiO2) and total hemoglobin. 由MHSI数据计算出的水水平可以传递关于组织的水合状态的信息。 MHSI data calculated by the water level can transmit information about the organization's hydration status. 在休克状态中,超光谱成像的模式也可用于揭示人体对血液动力学障碍的反应。 In a state of shock, and hyperspectral imaging mode can also be used to reveal the body's response to hemodynamic disorders. 在人体对血容量过低的反应中,为了集中血流,血液通常在该过程的非常早期被分流远离皮肤。 In response to the body's blood volume is too low, in order to concentrate the blood flow, the blood is usually at a very early stage of the process is diverted away from the skin. 因此,通过监测皮肤及其微循环模式或水合状态,我们可以较早地获得关于血液动力学障碍的严重性的信息。 Therefore, by monitoring the skin and the micro-circulation mode or hydration state, we can obtain early information about the severity of hemodynamic disorders. 可以类似地评估涉及其它疾病(诸如糖尿病,全身感染或者心脏或肺部疾病)的微循环变化。 May similarly assessment involves other diseases (diabetes, systemic infection or disease such as a heart or lung) of microcirculation. 通过类似方法可以确认、评估或者跟踪其它急性或者慢性生理或者代谢变化(Greenman et al,Lancet2005 ;366 :1711)。 In a similar way to identify, evaluate, or track other acute or chronic physiological or metabolic changes (Greenman et al, Lancet2005; 366: 1711).

[0046] 组织图像中的变化反映了涉及区域血流和水合的全局变化和局部变化、以及与在检查下的微循环床的特异反应相关的更局部的变化。 [0046] tissue image changes reflect changes in the global and local changes in regional blood flow and relates to hydrated, as well as more localized variations in specific reactivity under examination bed microcirculation associated. 不同组织或者微循环床之间(例如,皮肤对颊黏膜,或者来自诸如前臂的外周位置的皮肤对来自诸如胸壁的更中心位置的皮肤)的反应的比较及其随时间的相对变化提供了额外的信息。 Between different organizations or microcirculatory bed (for example, the skin on the buccal mucosa, or the position of the outer periphery of the skin from the forearm skin such as the chest wall from a more central position) to compare their responses with the relative change provides additional time information.

[0047] 在医院环境中,可以进行大量的测量来监测休克。 [0047] In the hospital environment, a large number of measurements can be performed to monitor shock. 通过基于血压和血液的氧携带能力的明显下降,心率的升高以及脉搏特性的变化,监测朝向循环虚脱的进程。 Decreased ability to carry oxygen through the blood pressure and blood-based, changes in heart rate increases and the pulse characteristics, monitoring progress towards the circulation collapse. 存在几种缓冲对抗血压和氧携带能力的变化的补偿机制,限制了这些测量用于休克的早期评估的用途。 There are several buffer against changes in blood pressure and oxygen carrying capacity of the compensation mechanism, limiting the use of these measurements are used to shock the early assessment. 血压过低和休克的其它信号和症状的出现并不标志着循环障碍的开始,而是表示代偿失调的开始,即可能对于引入有效治疗来说太迟的时间点。 Hypotension and other signs and symptoms of shock is not marked the beginning of circulatory disorders, but rather denote the start decompensation, i.e. the point in time may be too late for effective treatment is introduced.

[0048] 另一个标准生命信号,心率,众所周知地是休克的非特异性指标。 [0048] Another standard vital signs, heart rate is known to be non-specific indicator of shock. 可能不能确切地解释在受伤士兵或者受伤病人中升高的脉搏速率,这是因为“战或逃(fight-or-flight) ”反应是自然的竞争结果。 May not accurately explain the wounded soldiers injured patients or elevated pulse rate, because the "fight or flight (fight-or-flight)" is the natural competition reaction results. 在战争中或者对于更常规的救护车或者急救室环境中的最初或者早期急救者而言,更侵入或更全面的测量是不现实的。 In war or for more conventional ambulance or emergency room environment or early first aid is concerned, more invasive or more comprehensive measure is unrealistic. 在这些环境中,例如可能不能实施侵入监测,诸如肺动脉(Swan-Ganz)导管插入(其提供对于血液气体和心输出量的测量)。 In these environments, such as intrusion detection may not be implemented, such as the pulmonary artery (Swan-Ganz) catheterization (which provides for blood gases and cardiac output measurement). 因此,在军事和民事领域两者中,存在对于小型、非侵入并且便携的测量系统的需要。 Thus, in both military and civil, the need exists for a small, non-invasive and requires portable measurement system.

[0049] 可以利用例如经皮氧分压和/或二氧化碳分压(PtC02/C02)完成对血液气体的非侵入测量。 [0049] can be used for example, transcutaneous oxygen and / or carbon dioxide partial pressure (PtC02 / C02) to complete the non-invasive measurement of blood gases. 这样的测量的一个缺点是,其依赖于小的样品量,该小的样品量不能精确地反映整体的组织状况。 One disadvantage of such a measurement is that it relies on a small sample size, the small sample size does not accurately reflect the overall condition of the tissue. 此外,在皮肤上放置探针本身改变了血流和生理学。 In addition, placing the probe itself and physiological changes in blood flow in the skin.

[0050] MHSI数据还可以与由如下的测量中的一种或其组合提供的数据结合:皮肤温度、核心温度、心率、RR间期变化、动脉血压、呼气末二氧化碳、tcP02、颅多普勒、脉搏血氧测量、激光多普勒、超声、NIR点光谱分析、神经传导、心输出量、心搏量、中心静脉压、肺动脉压、肺毛细血管楔压、组织水合测量、以及诸如PH和乳酸之类的血液化学值,以便为护理者提供额外的信息,提高诊断准确性或者传达对于生理状态的改变的或者濒临休克的更早警告。 [0050] MHSI data can also be provided with the data measured by the following one or a combination of binding: between skin temperature, core temperature, heart rate, RR change period, arterial blood pressure, end-tidal carbon dioxide, tcP02, transcranial Doppler Le, pulse oximetry, laser doppler, ultrasound, NIR spectroscopy point, nerve conduction, cardiac output, stroke volume, central venous pressure, pulmonary artery pressure, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, tissue hydration measurement, as well as PH and blood chemistry values of lactic acid and the like, in order to provide additional information for the carer to improve the diagnostic accuracy, or to convey a change in physiological state or earlier warning verge shock.

[0051] 皮肤是用于监测的特别好的选择。 [0051] The skin is a particularly good choice for monitoring. 除了其容易适用于基于摄像机的技术(诸如MHSI)之外,皮肤微循环还对休克和其它全身疾病状态具有被良好认识的反应。 In addition to its easy to apply to the camera-based technologies (such as MHSI) outside skin microcirculation also on the state of shock and other systemic diseases have been a good understanding of the reaction. 通过监测皮肤,MHSI可以跟踪由于包括失血、血液稀释、组织水量的增加或者血液从皮肤分流以保护到中心器官的血流在内的原因导致的、与血液或者红细胞量的疾病相关的变化。 By monitoring skin, MHSI can be tracked due to blood loss include hemodilution, blood or tissue to increase the amount of water from the skin into the bloodstream of the shunt to the reasons for the protection of organs, including the central cause of, or associated with erythrocytes of blood volume changes in disease. 还可以获得关于植物性神经系统的反应的信息,植物性神经系统对于皮肤微循环具有特异性影响,并且可以提供关于身体反应以及损伤或者疾病状态的起因和严重性的额外信息。 Can also be obtained on the autonomic nervous system response information, autonomic nervous system to the skin microcirculation specific influence, and may provide the cause and severity of the reaction as well as additional information on the physical injury or disease state. 对于不同的疾病状态、不同的休克形式或者对于特定的有机体的败血性休克的情况,这可能是不同的。 For different disease states, different forms of shock, or for a particular situation organism of septic shock, which may be different. 用MHSI进行的皮肤测量可以用于得到关于氧传输、氧提取和水合水平的信息(其可以被其次地用于评价与诸如休克和糖尿病的各种疾病状态相关的生理学)。 Skin measurement MHSI can be used to obtain an oxygen transmission, oxygen extraction and hydration level information on (which can be followed and used to evaluate a variety of disease states such as diabetes-related shock and physiology).

[0052] 氧合血红素(OxyHb)、脱氧血红素(DeoxyHb)以及水系数可以被独立地表现为图像或者反应目标区域(ROI)上的平均值的标量,或者氧合血红素和脱氧血红素系数可以被用于计算超光谱组织氧饱和度(ShsiO2 = OxyHb/ (OxyHb+DeoxyHb))、总血红素。 [0052] oxyhemoglobin (OxyHb), deoxyhemoglobin (DeoxyHb) and water coefficient can be expressed as an image or independently reaction target area (ROI) on the average of the scalar or oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin coefficients can be used to calculate the hyperspectral tissue oxygen saturation (ShsiO2 = OxyHb / (OxyHb + DeoxyHb)), the total heme. 该信息可以被表现为黑白色或者伪彩色图像,或者氧合血红素和脱氧血红素值(或者它们的与氧提取和输送相等价的组合)可以以诸如血压(egXX/YY)的格式被表示在一起。 This information may be represented as black and white or pseudo-color images, or oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin values (or their combination delivery and oxygen extraction and phase equivalent) may form such as blood pressure (egXX / YY) is denoted together. 这样的表示可以用来代表ROI中的任何像素的氧合血红素和脱氧血红素值,表示整个ROI上或者ROI的任何子部分上的平均氧合血红素和脱氧血红素值,或者氧合血红素和脱氧血红素值可以通过公式或者算法被组合成一个数值(例如,超光谱休克指数)。 Such representation may be used to represent any oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin values of pixels in the ROI, represents the average value of oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin or any sub-section over the entire ROI on ROI, or red blood oxygenation Su and deoxyhemoglobin values can be combined by formula or algorithm into a number (for example, hyperspectral shock index). 在这些阶段中的任何一个中,可以添加来自水系数的附加数据或者其它生理或生化值,以提高该技术的实用性。 In any one of these stages, you can add additional data from the water, or other physiological factors or biochemical values to improve the usefulness of the technology. 例如,在给定的图像中可以选择不同的色彩方案来表示OxyHb、DeoxyHb和水系数,或者对于一个像素或者区域的每一个系数的标量值可以被表示为XX//YY//ZZ。 For example, in a given image, you can select a different color scheme to represent OxyHb, DeoxyHb and coefficient of water, or a coefficient for each pixel or region of scalar values can be represented as XX // YY // ZZ.

[0053] 例如,在目标区域从皮肤确定的OxyHb系数均值在休克开始之前下降,同时该值的标准差增大。 [0053] For example, the target area determined from the average skin OxyHb coefficient before shock began to decline, while the value of the standard deviation increases. 这些趋势在人LBNP和猪出血实验中都观察到了。 These trends in the human and pig bleeding LBNP experiments are observed. 此外,超光谱休克指数(其由OxyHb系数的均值和标准差获得),斑点指数以及时域指数被表明与心率和低体负压相关,并且与心搏量和脉压适度相关。 Furthermore, hyperspectral shock index (its mean and standard deviation obtained from OxyHb coefficient), spot index and the index is show time domain associated with the heart rate and lower body negative pressure and moderately correlated with stroke volume and pulse pressure. 利用糖尿病作为实例,OxyHb/DeoxyHb值通常对于对照受试者为约30/40,对于患有糖尿病性神经病的受试者为20/50。 As examples of the use of diabetes, OxyHb / DeoxyHb value to the control subject is usually about 30/40, for a subject suffering from diabetic neuropathy 20/50.

[0054] 麻醉可以改变对于皮肤血流的控制机制,导致血流振荡(通常响应于血容量过低而发生)的抑制。 [0054] The control mechanism for anesthesia may alter the skin blood flow, leading to blood flow oscillations (typically occur in response to hypovolemia) inhibition. 超光谱图像对于麻醉病人和苏醒病人可以是不同的,可以随着麻醉的深度而变化,或者可以随着施予的特定药物而变化。 Hyperspectral image awake patient for anesthesia patients and can be different and can vary with depth of anesthesia, or with the administration of certain drugs change. 在各种药理情况下的反应文库可以用于改善结果。 Library under various reaction conditions can be used to improve the pharmacological results. 例如,Freeman等人的美国专利6,640,130教导了通过多变量分类算法从包括热测量在内的多个图像和谱图提取信息的用途。 E.g., Freeman et al., U.S. Patent No. 6,640,130 teaches the use of extracting information from multivariate classification algorithm including a plurality of images, including thermal measuring and spectra. 添加关于病人状况、其它血液动力学或者其它参数、推定诊断或者施予的治疗的信息可以改善结果。 Add on the patient's condition, other hemodynamic parameters or other presumed diagnosis or treatment administered information can improve the results. Braverman和其同事通过激光多普勒血流测定法(laser Doppler flowmetry)描述了皮肤循环显微解剖学和血流的区域不均匀性之间的关系。 Braverman and colleagues describe the relationship between the skin and blood circulation microscopic anatomy of regional variation between measured by laser Doppler method (laser Doppler flowmetry). 他们还描述了在身体同侧和身体异侧的肢上的位置之间的血流振荡的同步性,提示这样的振荡主要由交感神经系统控制。 They also describe the location on the limb ipsilateral and the opposite side of the body between the blood flow oscillations synchronous, suggesting this oscillation is mainly controlled by the sympathetic nervous system.

[0055] 在低体负压下的未麻醉人中采用MHSI的进一步研究表明,图像的目标区域(ROI)中的区域不均匀性的增大可以由氧合血红素和氧饱和度(ShsiO2)的超光谱测量来表明,并且氧合血红素和ShsiO2的这样的不均匀性的变化是对于中心血容量过低的反应的主要特征,因为在不同的时间点所收集的图像之间不均匀性变化更大。 [0055] Further studies in unanesthetized among lower body negative pressure using MHSI indicate that the target area image (ROI) in the region of non-uniformity can be increased by oxyhemoglobin and oxygen saturation (ShsiO2) hyperspectral measurements show variations and unevenness such as oxyhemoglobin and ShsiO2 hypovolemia is the center of the main features of the reaction, because at different points in time between the collected image unevenness greater change.

[0056] 热调节是皮肤循环的主要功能,并且在外伤伤员中通常出现体温下降。 [0056] thermal regulation loop is the main function of the skin, and usually occurs in injured trauma temperature drops. 同样现在对于用于帮助患有血液动力学不足和其它医学问题的病人的早期护理的治疗还处于发展阶段。 The same dynamics are now suffering for lack of blood to help patients and other medical problems early care and treatment is still in the development stage. 通过MHSI技术可以定义全身体温下降和局部皮肤总血红素、氧输送、氧提取以及氧饱和度之间的关系。 You can define the relationship between the body temperature drops and topical skin total hemoglobin, oxygen delivery, oxygen extraction, and oxygen saturation between technology through MHSI. 在出血性休克研究过程中,平均皮肤氧饱和度(ShsiO2)和OxyHb值的下降不是由全身体温下降引起的。 In hemorrhagic shock during the study, the average skin oxygen saturation (ShsiO2) and falling OxyHb value is not caused by the body temperature drops. 核心和皮肤温度被维持。 Core and skin temperature is maintained.

[0057] 在单独的实验研究中,中度的体温下降(降到32C )不会产生与在出血性休克中观察到的相同的ROI上的组织氧合的平均变化。 [0057] In a separate experimental studies, moderate hypothermia (reduced to 32 C) does not produce the same average ROI and organizational changes observed in hemorrhagic shock on oxygenation. 随着更深程度的体温下降(26C),观察到更明显的变化。 With a deeper degree of hypothermia (26 C), more significant changes were observed. 可能地,在体温下降期间,减小的代谢要求抵抗了减饱和作用。 Possibly, during the temperature drops, reducing the resistance to the metabolic requirements of desaturation effect. 这些实验在麻醉的猪中进行,并且苏醒或者麻醉的人可能具有非常不同的结果。 In these experiments pigs were anesthetized and awake or anesthesia may have very different results. 在这些情况下,得到了将可用于在发生或者导致了体温下降的情况下监测生理状态的不同参数和模式。 In these cases, the temperature drops were monitored under different circumstances physiological state parameters and modes will be available in the event of or leads. MHSI可用于监测与体温下降的全身生理学和代谢状态。 MHSI can be used to monitor the temperature drops and systemic physiological and metabolic state.

[0058] 传统地,医师已经利用毛细血管再充盈作为全身灌注的指示。 [0058] Traditionally, physicians have used as a systemic perfusion capillary refill instructions. 若干其它的专利描述了同样试图提供休克的早期检测的方法。 Several other patents describe attempts to provide the same method for the early detection of shock. Shani等(美国专利申请公布No. 20040249290)描述了一种休克监测设备,其由记录病人的皮肤变化的光学设备构成。 Shani et al. (U.S. Patent Application Publication No. 20040249290) describes a shock monitoring device, which consists of an optical recording apparatus constituting the skin of the patient changes. 在该专利中,如同医师按压皮肤一样,压力被短暂地施加在病人的外周皮肤上。 In this patent, as the physician presses the skin, the pressure is briefly applied to the outer periphery of the patient's skin. 该设备自动检测皮肤从白变回到粉红色所需的时间,提供毛细血管再充盈时间的量度。 The device automatically detects skin from white to pink back the time required to provide a measure of capillary refill time.

[0059] 如上所述,血压测量被最常用于确定与休克相关的血压过低。 [0059] As described above, blood pressure measurements are most commonly used to determine the shock associated with hypotension. 若干最近的专利描述了几种利用血压测量来监测休克的额外方法。 Several recent patents describe the use of several additional methods of blood pressure measurement to monitor shock. Shairock等(美国专利申请公布No. 20030040675)描述了用于监测心血管系统的非侵入式方法。 Shairock et al. (U.S. Patent Application Publication No. 20030040675) describes a non-invasive method for monitoring the cardiovascular system. 在该方法中,压强传感器被布置在血压箍带下方。 In this method, the pressure sensor is arranged in the bottom of the blood pressure cuff. 进行"超心脏收缩(Suprasystolic)"测量,即,在箍带压强大于病人的心脏收缩血压时进行压强测量。 A "super-systolic (Suprasystolic)" measurements, i.e., when the cuff pressure is greater than the patient's systolic blood pressure pressure measurement. 所记录的时间序列示出了由心跳产生的初始脉搏,接着是一系列来自循环系统内的反应。 The recorded time series shows the initial pulse generated by heartbeat, followed by a series of reactions from within the circulatory system. 该专利描述了根据血液时间序列估计血管收缩程度的方法。 This patent describes a time series in accordance with blood levels of vasoconstriction estimation method. 所描述的数据表明超心脏收缩可以有助于休克诊断。 Data show that the described contraction of the heart can contribute to shock ultra diagnosis. [0060] Cohen等(美国专利申请公布No. 2004015816)描述了血压测量的第二用途。 [0060] Cohen et al. (U.S. Patent Application Publication No. 2004015816) describes the use of a second blood pressure measurement. 在该方法中,通过估计循环树(circulary tree)的总机械阻力,可以由血压测量来计算出与心脏输出量成比例的量。 In this method, by estimating the loop tree (circulary tree) total mechanical resistance, can be calculated by measuring the blood pressure and cardiac output is proportional to the amount. 如上所述,心脏输出量显然是确认休克开始的重要参数。 As mentioned above, the cardiac output is clearly recognizes the important parameters of shock began. 但是,因为该设备估计与心脏输出量成比例的量(而不是直接估计心脏输出量),所以在该设备可以被用于检测休克开始之前,其将需要对于每个病人进行基线测量。 However, because the device estimates cardiac output with proportional amounts (rather than a direct estimate cardiac output), so that the device can be used to detect shock prior to the start, which will be needed for each patient baseline measurement. 此外,由心脏输出量测量产生的数值本身不总是与不可逆的血压动力学紊乱相关,即,给定个体的反应或者适应性存在不同-这用由MHSI可获得的多参数更容易定量和监测。 In addition, the value generated by the cardiac output measurement itself is not always irreversible blood pressure disorders of kinetics, i.e., a given individual's response or the presence of different adaptive - This is used by the multi-parameter MHSI available more easily quantified and monitored .

[0061] 类似地,在诸如糖尿病或者充血性心力衰竭的更慢性的病症中,可以监测氧输送和提取的微循环改变和变化,并且可以提供疾病状态或者疾病进程的有用信息。 [0061] Similarly, in or more chronic illnesses such as congestive heart failure, diabetes, you can monitor oxygen delivery and extraction of microcirculatory changes and variations, and can provide a disease state or disease progression of useful information. 并且,可以将给定个体的与休克相关的数据与反映糖尿病、充血性衰竭或者影响微循环或者皮肤的其它疾病状态的给定基线相关。 And may be associated with a given data and reflected shock diabetic individuals, the correlation of a given baseline congestive failure or microcirculation or other skin disease states. 随着糖尿病的影响范围增大,对于急性休克在慢性糖尿病的基线上的表现形式的理解是在必要的。 With the increasing influence of diabetes, acute shock at baseline chronic diabetes manifestation of understanding is necessary. 类似地,充血性心力衰竭是一种慢性病症,但是是其中对心原性的、出血性的、败血性或者其它休克的评估可能是特别重要的病症。 Similarly, congestive heart failure is a chronic condition, but is one of cardiogenic and hemorrhagic, septic or other shock may be particularly important to assess the condition. 同样,利用充血性心力衰竭参数库的基线,可以更容易地解释在休克中在这样的病人中观察到的特征的重要性。 Similarly, the use of the baseline parameter library congestive heart failure, can be more easily explain the importance of the shock observed in such patients characteristics. 该方法基于超光谱成像应用,在Freeman等的更早的专利——美国专利号20040236229中有描述,该专利通过引用被全文包含在本文中。 The method is based on the hyperspectral imaging applications, such as in Freeman earlier patent - US Patent No. 20040236229 are described, which are hereby incorporated by reference incorporated herein.

[0062] 对于上述方法的评价是其在许多情况下可以与MHSI测量互补。 [0062] For the above-described method of evaluation is that it can measure with MHSI complementary in many cases. 例如,由血压得到的估计可以提供关于整个循环系统的信息,而MHSI测量提供示出了皮肤中的循环模式的局部变化的高分辨率图像。 For example, the blood pressure obtained by the estimation can provide information about the entire circulatory system, and MHSI measurements provide shows a partial change of the skin of the cyclic pattern of high-resolution images.

[0063] MHSI是一种"成像光谱法"的方法。 [0063] MHSI is a way of "imaging spectroscopy". 光谱法被广泛用于监测各种组织的代谢状况。 Spectroscopy is widely used in a variety of organizations to monitor metabolic status. 例如,光谱法被结合在上述的脉搏血压计中,其利用不同的氧合血红素和脱氧血红素吸收带来估计动脉氧饱和度。 For example, spectroscopy are combined in the above pulse sphygmomanometer, which use different oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin absorption caused an estimated arterial oxygen saturation. 在近红外区域中的点光谱法提供关于皮下组织、肌肉和/或脑中的氧的组织饱和度以及组织水合的情况,并且已经被用于出血性休克、手足筋膜间室综合征的疾病监测,以及用于跟踪头外伤。 In the near-infrared region of the dot spectroscopy provide information on the subcutaneous tissue, muscle and / or tissue oxygen saturation and the circumstances of the brain tissue hydration, and has been used for hemorrhagic shock, foot compartment syndrome disease monitoring, and means for tracking head trauma.

[0064] 近红外测量已经被用于提供对血氧合的测量,其有可能用于检测休克。 [0064] near-infrared measurements have been used to provide a measurement of blood oxygenation, which might be used to detect shock. Ward等的最近的专利(美国专利申请公布No. 20040039269)描述了使用紫外、近紫外和近红外共振Raman光谱和荧光光谱来用于组织检查的休克监测方法。 Ward and other recent patent (US Patent Application Publication No. 20040039269) describes a shock monitoring methods using ultraviolet and near-ultraviolet and near-infrared spectroscopy and fluorescence resonance Raman spectroscopy for tissue examination. 除了别的内容之外,该发明还教导了可见和NIR漫射光谱法用于休克检测的用途,其不需要如Ward等中所述收集弱的荧光和共振Raman信号所需的灵敏检测器。 In addition to other content, the invention also teaches the use of visible and NIR spectroscopy for diffusing shock testing, it does not require as described in Ward et al. Collected and weak fluorescence resonance Raman signals required sensitive detector.

[0065] 对于近红外(NIR)和相关的点光谱测量,这些光谱方法不会得到图像,因此不会传递对于预测身体对于休克的反应很重要的关于血流的空间分布或者微循环变化的任何信息。 [0065] For the near-infrared (NIR) spectral measurements and associated point, these methods do not obtain the spectral image, it will not pass for the prediction of the body for shock reaction is important with regard to the spatial distribution of blood flow or any of microcirculation information. 此外,血红素吸收信息在可见光区域要比在NIR强得多。 In addition, information heme absorption in the visible region is much stronger than in the NIR. 假定常见的生物学和光学信号,由于更高的信噪比,更容易在可见光区域来定量与血红素相关的过程(如同在所提出的MHSI方法中所采用的)。 Assumed common biological and optical signals, due to the higher signal to noise ratio is easier to quantify in the visible region associated with heme process (as in the method proposed MHSI used). NIR光谱法已经被首先发展来监测更深的组织,诸如肌肉和脑。 NIR spectroscopy has been first developed to monitor deeper tissues, such as muscle and brain. 虽然皮肤和皮下测量结果可以被收集并且已经被报导,但是因为光极间距离和其它技术问题(可能包括与皮肤不均匀性相关的问题),这些结果是多变的,使得这些技术还没有被广泛用于临床实践。 While the skin and subcutaneous measurements may be collected and have been reported, but since the distance between the light poles and other technical problems (which may include non-uniformity associated with skin problems), these results are varied, so that these techniques have not been widely used in clinical practice.

[0066] 在机载系统(airborne system)中用于地质特征的分析数十年之后,HSI最近已经被应用于生物医学。 After decades [0066] in Airborne Systems (airborne system) for the analysis of geological features, HSI has recently been applied to biomedicine. 对于某一区域的每一个像素获取反射光的光谱,并且对每一个这样的光谱进行标准光谱分析。 For each pixel to obtain the spectrum of the reflected light of a region, and for each such spectrum standard spectral analysis. 这可以基于目标区域(ROI)的化学组成创建图像。 This may be based on chemical target area (ROI) of the composition to create an image. 这已经被用于组织学切片的显微研究。 This has been used to study microscopic histological sections. 在体内,MHSI已经被局部地使用来显示在一氧化氮吸入和抑制后的缺血-再灌注模型中以及患有镰刀形红细胞疾病的病人中的皮肤氧饱和度的宏观分布。 In vivo, MHSI have been used locally to show after ischemia and inhibition of nitric oxide inhalation - reperfusion model and those with sickle cell disease patients macroscopic distribution in the skin of oxygen saturation. MHSI的一个应用已经用于在整形手术之后的组织可存活性的早期预测:容易从在手术之后立即获取的近红外光谱图像所计算得到的氧饱和度映射图中明显显现出具有不足以维持存活的氧合的组织。 An application MHSI organization have been used in plastic surgery after viability Early Prediction: easy from the near-infrared spectral images obtained immediately after surgery the calculated oxygen saturation map showing the obvious have enough to maintain survival oxygenation of tissues. 相反,在手术后6-12小时,濒临坏死的临床信号对于肉眼来说不明显。 In contrast, in 6-12 hours after surgery, on the verge of clinical signs of necrosis is not obvious to the naked eye. 烧伤后的组织可存活性的评估也已经被进行。 Tissue burns after viability assessment has also been carried out.

[0067] 关于微循环的MHSI信息已经被用于评估患有糖尿病的人中的区域和全身微循环变化,并且在反映区域(例如足背)和全身(例如前臂)组织氧合和ShsiO2的MHSI数据与糖尿病足部疾病和发展溃疡的风险之间的相关性已经被找到。 [0067] MHSI information about the microcirculation has been used to assess regional and systemic microcirculation changes in people with diabetes, and (for example forearm) tissue oxygenation and ShsiO2 of MHSI reflecting area (such as dorsal) and systemic and risks related to data and the development of diabetic foot ulcer disease has been found between. 在对照受试者、糖尿病受试者以及具有神经病的糖尿病受试者中的ShsiO2典型值为42^^32%和28% (Greenman etal. Lancet2005 ;366 :1711)。 In control subjects, diabetic subjects and 32% and a value of 42 ^^ 28% (Greenman etal Lancet2005; 366.: 1711) with diabetic neuropathy in a subject ShsiO2 typical. 患有神经病的受试者发展足部溃疡的风险更高。 With a higher risk of developing neuropathy subjects foot ulcers. 神经功能对于控制微循环是重要的,这通过神经病性糖尿病患者中的血管舒张缺乏(这常见于在其它方面是健康的个体的受伤皮肤附近)得到证明。 Nerve function is important for the control of micro-circulation, which by neuropathic diabetic patients lack vascular relaxation (which in other respects is common in healthy individuals near the injured skin) be proved.

[0068] 本文描述了MHSI的如下应用:评估全身性疾病,以满足对于在超光谱成像提供的深度水平在军事和民事领域执行对休克的实时或者接近实时评估和监测的设备和方法的迫切需求。 [0068] This paper describes MHSI following applications: assess systemic disease, in order to meet the depth level in hyperspectral imaging to provide urgent needs in the field of military and civilian implementation of the shock of the real-time or near real-time device and method for assessing and monitoring the .

[0069] 如本文所实施和广泛描述的,本发明涉及如下的方法和设备,所述方法和设备用于通过超光谱或者多光谱成像实时地或者接近实时地评估一系列生理参数,包括到组织(包括皮肤、各种器官的黏膜或者绒膜)的氧输送和提取以及水输送,以及局部组织对于该输送的充分性的反应。 [0069] As embodied and broadly described herein, the present invention relates to a method and apparatus, the method and apparatus used by the hyperspectral or multispectral imaging in real-time or near real-time assessment of a series of physiological parameters, including the tissue (including the skin, mucous membranes of various organs or chorionic) of oxygen delivery and extraction, and water transport, as well as local organizations for the delivery of the adequacy of the response.

[0070] 本文描述的发明使用超光谱成像或者多光谱成像作为监测组织和微循环中(在此针对从皮肤获取图像进行了描述,但是不限于皮肤)的变化的非侵入式的并且(通常但不是必须的)非接触式的装置,其中,所述组织和微循环中的变化指示全身生理状态,包括在休克之前的状态或者在休克过程中出现的状态(不管是出血性的、血量减少性、心原性的、神经性的、败血性的还是其它休克状态)。 [0070] The invention described herein using hyperspectral imaging or as a multi-spectral imaging and monitoring of tissue microcirculation (here for acquiring an image from the skin has been described, but is not limited to the skin) non-intrusive and change (usually, but not required) Non-contact means, wherein said tissue and microcirculation in systemic physiological state change indication, including the state before the shock or shock occurs in the process state (either hemorrhagic, blood volume reduction sex, cardiogenic and neurological, septic shock or other state). 微循环的变化还可以指示本文所述的其它生理状态或者紊乱,并且作为用于提供监测治疗或者再生和病人可存活性的充足性的指标的手段。 Means changes in the microcirculation can also indicate other physiological state or disorder as described herein, and as a monitor for providing treatment or regeneration and survival of patients may be an indicator of adequacy. 与传统的方法不同,MHSI方法使用成像系统,并且能够显示和使人注意皮肤中的循环模式的变化以及这些变化中的变化。 Different from traditional methods, MHSI method using an imaging system, and the ability to display and make people pay attention to changes in circulation patterns in the skin as well as changes in these changes. 变化中的一种具体类型,色斑,已知是休克的症状。 Changing a specific type, pigmentation, known symptoms of shock. [0071 ] 当对生理状态的评估,或者对于治疗的反应或者潜在反应的评估是有利的时,本发明可适用于军事、危重病护理以及慢性疾病处理领域,在这些领域中,存在与休克、糖尿病、感染、败血症、脱水、体温下降、组织缺氧、低重力环境、充血性心力衰竭、高血压、血压过低或者其它生理紊乱相关的微循环或者组织氧合变化。 [0071] When the evaluation of the physiological state, or to assess the response to treatment or potential reactions are favorable, the present invention is applicable to the military, as well as areas of critical care and chronic disease management in these areas, the presence of shock, diabetes, infections, sepsis, dehydration, hypothermia, hypoxia, low-gravity environment, congestive heart failure, hypertension, hypotension, or other physiological disorders related to changes in the microcirculation or tissue oxygenation. 休克作为急性微循环病理学的实例代表了光谱的一端。 As an example of acute shock microcirculation pathology represents one end of the spectrum. 糖尿病代表光谱的另一端,并且与更慢的更长期的变化相关,但是,这样的变化也被反映在微循环变化中。 Diabetes behalf of another end of the spectrum, and is associated with more long-term changes more slowly, however, such changes are also reflected in the changes in microcirculation.

[0072] 本发明的仪器和方法还可以被应用于许多形式的休克和其它急性和慢性病症,其中,用于筛查、评估、诊断、早期警告、治疗的监测或者可存活性评估的生理学监测是有用的。 [0072] The apparatus and method of the present invention may also be applied to many forms of shock, and other acute and chronic conditions, wherein, for screening, assessment, diagnosis, early warning, monitoring or physiologically monitoring viability assessment of treatment are useful. 除了或者替代作为与对氧输送和氧提取的失配的局部反应相关的微循环变化和我们可以在出血性休克中观察到的水合变化,我们预期了其它与还可以通过超光谱成像确认、评估和定量的与其它形式的休克相关的具体发现结果。 In addition to or instead of the microcirculation as changes in the local reaction on oxygen delivery and oxygen extraction mismatch associated with hydrated and we can change observed in hemorrhagic shock, we expect the other and can also be confirmed by the hyperspectral imaging, assessment and the specific findings associated with other forms of shock quantitative. 例如,在败血症休克中,多种炎性介导剂的存在影响微循环。 For example, in septic shock, there are a variety of inflammatory mediators agent microcirculation. 这些微循环变化回过头来利用我们的MHSI技术被确认并且监测。 These microcirculation changes back to using our MHSI technology is confirmed and monitored. 这允许关于感染或者休克的开始或者进展的具体信息,或者监测抗生剂、静脉内流体给药、用于治疗血压过低或者急性心脏代偿失调的血压增高剂(诸如多巴胺或者neosyn印herine)或者其它治疗形式的功效。 This allows the specific information on the beginning of infection, or shock or progression, or the monitoring of the antibiotic, intravenous fluid administration, for the treatment of hypotension or acute cardiac decompensation of blood pressure agents (such as dopamine or neosyn printed herine) or Other forms of therapeutic efficacy. 所观察到的微循环变化还可用于确定一种或多种致病生物,这可能与异质组织信号相关。 The observed changes in the microcirculation can also be used to determine one or more pathogenic organisms, which may be associated with a heterogeneous tissue signal.

[0073] 在其它慢性病症中,MHSI可以用于从组织获得空间和光谱数据,以提供与用于特定治疗的施予和监测这样的治疗的指示相关的信息。 [0073] In other chronic disorders, MHSI can be used to obtain spatial and spectral data from the organization to provide for administering and monitoring the specific indication for the treatment of such treatment-related information. 这包括使用MHSI测量来帮助医师治疗患有诸如高血压或者充血性心力衰竭的病症的病人,并且提供可以有助于与特定的抗高血压药的使用或者在减负剂之后相关的决定的有用信息。 This includes the use of MHSI measurements to help physicians treating patients with such as hypertension or congestive heart failure condition, and to provide useful information and can contribute to a particular use of antihypertensive drugs or agents after reducing the burden related decisions . 在此,可以针对特定的治疗方案来选择病人,或者可以利用MHSI来监测治疗。 Here, you can select patients for specific treatment options, or you can use MHSI to monitor treatment. 另外的用途包括在类固醇治疗方面监测天然组织或者受伤组织。 Additional uses include monitoring of natural tissue or injured tissue steroid therapy. 另一个用途包括对于神经学缺陷的全身效应进行监测。 Another use for systemic effects include neurological deficits were monitored.

[0074] 另一个重申的应用是用于ICU和危重病护理目的的先进代谢监测器,其用于定义代谢支持和组织氧输送和提取的充足性。 [0074] Another application is to reaffirm ICU and critical care for the purpose of advanced metabolic monitors, which are used to define metabolic support and tissue oxygen delivery and extraction of adequacy. 这对于确定充氧和循环支持的组合充足性以优化护理和调节治疗是特别有用的。 This oxygenation and circulation to determine the adequacy of support for the combination to optimize care and conditioning treatment is particularly useful. 另一个用途是用于评估充氧的充足性。 Another use is to assess the adequacy of oxygenation. 在患有肺损伤的病人中,有时过充氧或者过氧合可能导致组织损伤并且延长住院时间,或者甚至导致差的长期后果或者死亡,确定维持充足的组织氧合和吸氧所真正需要的呼吸器支持的最小量将是有用的。 In patients with lung injury, and sometimes over-oxygenation or too oxygenation may lead to tissue damage and prolonged hospitalization, or even lead to death or long-term consequences of poor, determined to maintain adequate tissue oxygenation and oxygen are really needed The minimum amount of the respirator support would be useful. 这可以通过如下方式来确定:监测从对组织氧合血红素、组织脱氧血红素的测量获得的氧输送和氧提取水平,和/或利用由这两种测量提供的信息,同时添加或者不添加关于被监测组织(例如,皮肤、黏膜或者其它组织)的水含量的信息。 This can be determined by the following ways: monitoring of oxygen delivery and oxygen extraction from the level of oxyhemoglobin, deoxyhemoglobin tissue measurements obtained tissue, and / or use of these two measurements provided by the information, and add or not to add Information about the monitored tissue (eg, skin, mucous membranes, or other organization) of water content. 这还可用于确定对肺部药物(包括气管扩张剂、表面活性剂等)的需要。 This may also be used to determine the need for pulmonary drug (including bronchodilators, surfactants, etc.) of.

[0075] 受到生物或者化学剂的作用的病人的超光谱成像允许由非专业人员简单实施,用于野外、诊所和医院环境下的快速使用,而不必进行事先的病人准备或者随后的实验室工作。 [0075] by biological or chemical agents acting patient hyperspectral imaging allows for easy implementation by non-professionals, for quick access to the field, clinic and hospital environment, without having to prepare in advance of the patient or the subsequent laboratory work . 在一个实施例中,利用生物相关化合物的光谱和空间数据,使用MHSI确定生理变化,以估计与零星感染或者流行性感染相关的个体或者人群的感染。 In one embodiment, the use of spectral and spatial data biologically relevant compounds, using MHSI determine physiological changes, to estimate with sporadic or epidemic infection associated with infection of individuals or groups of the infection. 在这些环境中,MHSI为治疗类选法、筛查、诊断、确定疗法、治疗监测、监测疾病进程或者分辨提供了有用的工具。 In these environments, MHSI for triage, screening, diagnosis, determine treatment, treatment monitoring, monitoring of disease progression or resolution provides a useful tool. 对于可能受到生化战(CBW)药剂的作用的情况,MHSI确定可能的起作用的病原体/种类,并且估计作用程度,疾病进程和治疗的有效性。 May be the case for biological warfare (CBW) agents of action, MHSI determine the possible role of pathogen / species, and to estimate the effectiveness of the role of the degree of disease progression and treatment. 在病原体种类之间的进行区分的快速、低成本、非侵入性筛查工具允许评估在流行病期间人群的关键部分。 In fast, low-cost, non-invasive screening tool to distinguish between types of pathogens allows assessment key part of the population during a pandemic.

[0076] 具体地,MHSI可以利用氧合血红素和脱氧血红素以及水数据图像的组合估计各种免疫法(例如天花)的“反应”,以便于诊断。 [0076] Specifically, MHSI can use a combination of oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin, and water is estimated data images of various immunoassay (such as smallpox) "response" in order to diagnose. 在某种程度上,所有病原体导致微循环变化,并且身体本身充当"生物放大器",因为其产生包括局部化或者扩散化的皮肤表现的免疫反应。 In a way, all pathogens cause microcirculation changes, and the body itself acts as a "biological amplifier" because it produces, including the immune response of localized or diffuse cutaneous manifestations. 这些检查这些反应本身,以检测指示受到生物剂作用的细微变化。 These checks these reaction itself, to detect subtle changes in the role of instruction by biological agents. 生物剂对于作为整体的有机体的特性影响可以是较显著的,并且产生较大的检测"信号",这与现场确定少量小的细菌或者病毒的更困难的任务不同。 Biological agents for the characteristics of the organism as a whole may be more significant, and have a greater detection "signal", which is different from the scene to determine the more difficult tasks a small number of small bacteria or viruses. 通过放大此自然反应,在一个实施例中,MHSI可用作评估在自然流行病中或者生物战争场景中有感染危险的人的筛查工具。 By amplifying this natural reaction, in one embodiment, MHSI can be used to assess or biological warfare scenes of people at risk of infection screening tool in natural epidemics.

[0077] 除了CBW应用,超光谱技术更广泛地提供了在感染环境下将局部信息与全身病原生理学相关联的能力。 [0077] In addition to CBW applications, hyperspectral technology is more widely available in the environment under the capacity of local infection and systemic pathogen physiology information associated with it. 对于感染的快速和准确的判定和分类将有利于从由于HIV或者化疗而免疫受损的病人到败血性休克的老年或者非常年轻的病人的范围内的广大病人。 For the infection quickly and accurately determine and classification will benefit from as a result of HIV or chemotherapy patients immunocompromised patient within the range of the majority of septic shock in elderly or very young patients of. 通过区分传染性有机体的种类,MHSI可以有助于确定抗生治疗方案的最初选择,或者有助于在病毒性肠胃炎和阑尾炎之间进行诊断。 By distinguishing between the types of infectious organisms, MHSI can help determine the initial selection of antibiotic therapy, or contribute between viral gastroenteritis and appendicitis diagnosis. 在另一个重申的应用中,MHSI被设计来评估不那么显著的代谢变化,以及诸如糖尿病之类的慢性病的后遗症。 In another application reiterate, MHSI was designed to evaluate the not-so-significant metabolic changes, as well as chronic diseases such as diabetes and the like effects. 糖尿病人具有动脉粥样硬化的外周脉管疾病或者糖尿病性足部溃疡继发的肢体丧失的高风险性,并且将大大地受益于从能够在早期阶段检测感染的扩散或者全身性后遗症的设备。 Diabetic peripheral vasculature disease have atherosclerosis or diabetic foot ulcers secondary to high risk of limb loss, and will greatly benefit from the proliferation of devices capable of detecting the early stages of infection or systemic sequelae.

[0078] 在受化学或者生物作用方面,MHSI可以用于快速和准确地评估受伤或者受影响的个体的血液动力学状态。 [0078] In respects to the chemical or biological effect, MHSI can be used to quickly and accurately assess the injury or hemodynamic status of the affected individual. OxyHb、DeoxyHb和H2O或者这些参数的任何组合的局部变化可以用于评估可能受到化学或者生物剂作用的受害人的生理状态。 Any combination of local variations OxyHb, DeoxyHb and H2O or these parameters can be used to assess the physiological state may be subject to chemical or biological agents in the role of victim. 给定具体的与免疫或者炎症相关的变化,心血管或者神经或者其它反应、作用的严重程度、毒剂的确认、作用的持续时间、反应的严重性和对于护理者有用的其它参数可以被评估并且随时间来跟踪。 Given a specific immune-related or inflammatory changes, or the duration of the nerve or other cardiovascular confirm reaction severity action, agents, effect, the severity of the reaction and can be evaluated for the carer and other parameters useful over time to track. MHSI可以提供获取可用于评估病人状况的"生命征候(vital sign)"的非接触式手段,无需接触病人或者去除任何防护装备。 MHSI can provide access can be used to assess the patient's condition "life signs (vital sign)" means a non-contact, no contact with the patient or to remove any protective equipment. 笨重的生化战(CBW)个人防护装备可能妨碍医务人员或者急救者进行对同样也可能穿着CBW装备的伤员的标准评估所需的接触。 Bulky biochemical warfare (CBW) personal protective equipment may prevent or emergency medical personnel who were on the same equipment may also be wearing CBW wounded criteria for assessing desired contact. 获取脉搏或者测量血压经常是不可能的。 Get pulse or measuring blood pressure is often impossible. 与可能受污染的个体接触的任何装置也可能被污染,并且在没有繁重的清洁措施或者一次性遮盖物的情况下可能不能被再利用。 Any apparatus may be contaminated with the individual contact may also be contaminated and may not be reused without onerous cleansing measures or disposable covering the case. 因此,作为远程感测技术以在这样的环境中提供生理和血液动力学评估的MHSI的使用是非常有利的。 Thus, as the remote sensing technology to provide physiologic and hemodynamic assessment in such an environment MHSI use is very advantageous. 并且,优选的是如下的感测技术,其将透过CBW装备的若干部分(诸如透明塑料面板或者其它这样的装备中的窗口),或者直接透过不透明的织物或者其它这样的材料进行观察。 It is preferable that the sensing technology as follows, it will be through several parts (such as a transparent plastic panel, or other such equipment in the window) CBW equipment, or through direct observation of an opaque fabric or other such materials.

[0079] 在一个实施例中,所提出的发明可以通过向受到生化防护服的战地医务人员提供报告危重伤员信息的"生命征候",来提供外伤治疗类选法。 [0079] In one embodiment, the invention can be made to suffer through biochemical protective clothing battlefield medical personnel to provide reports critically wounded information "signs of life", to provide trauma triage. 所得到的用于传送可以被解释为新的"生命征候"测量的信息的MHSI算法将固有地确定为了提供最有效的伤员护理和远程治疗类选法所需的测量。 Obtained for the transfer can be interpreted as a new "signs of life" measurements MHSI algorithm information will inherently determined to provide the most effective care of the wounded and remote triage desired measurement. 本发明还为医务人员提供更大的作出决定的能力,以基于否则的话是不可得的关于生存/死亡状态、受伤的严重程度和进程以及哪些伤员需要生命救护介入的信息,对伤员护理进行优先次序排列。 The present invention also provides a greater ability to make decisions for medical personnel, otherwise it is based on the existence unavailable / dead status, injury severity and course of life and what information needs to rescue the wounded intervention, prioritize care for the wounded that order.

[0080] 在一个实施例中,由战地医务人员携带的个人数字助理(PDA)之类的设备可以具有单个按钮,该按钮甚至可以在戴有防护手套的情况下被按压,以获取HSI图像并且提供数字读数或者甚至更简单提供倒下的士兵的医疗状态的简单可视码(绿、黄、红)。 [0080] In one embodiment, the field of medical personnel to carry a personal digital assistant (PDA) or the like device may have a single button, which can even be worn under a protective glove is pressed, to obtain HSI image and provides digital readout or even more simply to provide medical status fallen soldiers simple visual code (green, yellow, red). MHSI通过允许穿着CBW装备的战地医务人员能够:1)在士兵受伤后的短时间内开始治疗类选法;2)接收更准确的关于受伤严重程度和朝向休克的进程的信息;以及3)优化可用的治疗和疏散,来减小战争的伤亡。 MHSI wearing CBW equipment by allowing battlefield medical personnel be able to: 1) soldiers were injured in a short time after the beginning of triage; 2) receive more accurate information about the severity of the injury and the process towards the shock; and 3) optimization available treatment and evacuation, to reduce the casualties of war. 最后,因为战地医务人员(即使不存在CBW的担心)的战争期间死亡率高达步兵的两倍,所以HSI可以通过提供对于死亡或者不可抢救的士兵的早期确认,尤其是在生化战争情况下通过允许非接触并且更远程的测量,有助于减小战地医务人员的风险。 Finally, because the field of medical personnel (even if there is no worry about CBW) mortality rate twice as high as the infantry during the war, so the HSI can provide an early confirmation of death or non-rescue soldiers, especially in the case of biological warfare by allowing and more remote non-contact measurement, helps reduce the risk of battlefield medical personnel.

[0102] 因此,在五个处理处理步骤之前,描述了合适的HSI设备的一个实施例。 [0102] Thus, prior to processing the five processing steps, describes a suitable embodiment of an apparatus HSI.

[0103] 医疗超光谱成像系统 [0103] medical hyperspectral imaging system

[0104] 在一个实施例中,通过将HSI伪彩色图像与由相同的HSI数据合成的高质量彩色图片进行配对,以非常直观的形式提供HSI数据。 [0104] In one embodiment, a pseudo-color image by the HSI and HSI data synthesized by the same high-quality color image pair to form very intuitive HSI data. 通过在彩色和HSI图像之间进行翻转或者合并这些图像,容易实现对目标区域(ROI)的鉴定和估计,并且通过在ROI上进行放大以得到提高的分辨率和额外的信息,可以提高对目标区域(ROI)的鉴定和估计。 By between color and HSI image inversion or combine these images, easy to implement the target area (ROI) identification and estimation, and by performing amplification in the ROI to give extra information to improve the resolution and can improve the target region (ROI) identification and estimation. 图像可见于计算机屏幕、投影仪或者前导显示器(heads-up-display),和/或作为任何其它的数字信息被存储和传输,和/或被打印。 Images found in a computer screen, a projector or monitor preamble (heads-up-display), and / or as any other digital information is stored and transmitted, and / or printed. 所呈现的图像反映了超光谱成像仪的高分辨率,并且可以用升级的硬件进行改进。 Rendered image reflects the high resolution hyperspectral imager, and can be used to upgrade the hardware improvements. 或者,数据可以以对于整个R0I、该ROI任意给定的像素或者选定的区域的单个标量数值的方式被提供。 Alternatively, the data may be for the entire R0I, single scalar mode the ROI for any given pixel or region of the selected values is provided. 在此实施例中,优选地,氧输送和氧提取数据可以以XX/YY的形式被提供。 In this embodiment, preferably, oxygen delivery and oxygen extraction data may be in the form of XX / YY is provided. 类似于血压并且易于理解的,这样的测量承载了氧合血红素和脱氧血红素信息两者,但是较之单一标量变量提供了更完整的图片,因为两个分量的每一个都承载了特定的信息。 Like blood pressure and easy to understand, such measurements carries information both oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin, but compared to a single scalar variable to provide a more complete picture, because the two components each carrying a specific information. 如果水也被表示的话,则其可以被表示为XX/YY/ZZ。 If the water is also represented, then it may be expressed as XX / YY / ZZ.

[0105] 由于生物体系的复杂性,医疗人员希望获得关于给定情况的尽可能多的信息,以作出最可靠的诊断,但是需要将其简化到适用于帮助作出决定的形式。 [0105] Due to the complexity of biological systems of medical staff want to get as much information about a given situation in order to make the most reliable diagnosis, but it needs to be applied to help simplify the decision form. MHSI向医生提供原先不可得的额外信息,并且可以与其它的临床评估一起使用,来作出决定。 MHSI provides additional information previously not available to the doctor and may be used together with other clinical assessments, to make a decision. MHSI提供由人进一步分析的图像;最初结果可以与查询表比较。 MHSI provide an image for further analysis by the people; the initial results can be compared with the lookup table. 最后,可以使用计算机算法,其自动将结果与从查询表所预期的后果进行匹配。 Finally, the algorithm can use a computer, which automatically results from the look-up table to match the expected results.

[0106] 此外,HSI将庞大的多光谱或者超光谱信息转录为一个图像,该图像通过代表梯度映射图中的精细梯度的数百万个彩色色调表示复杂的数据。 [0106] In addition, HSI will be a huge multispectral or hyperspectral information transcribed into an image that represent complex data through a representative gradient map of millions of fine gradient color shades. 在伪彩色图像中的特定颜色和不同形状的特征允许进行不同组织类型(诸如肿瘤、结缔组织、肌肉、溢出血液、以及血管)之间的区分。 Distinguish between specific colors and different shapes characterized in that the pseudo-color image allows for different tissue types (such as cancer, connective tissue, muscle, blood overflow, and vascular) between. MHSI还允许肿瘤级别的接近实时的区分,这对于作出适当的医学决定将是有用的。 MHSI also allows tumors to distinguish between levels of near real-time, which make appropriate medical decisions would be useful.

[0107] MHSI的主要目的是以可容易解释的数值、图像或者其它的格式收集和提供生理相关数据,以便:1)将人的视力能力扩展到常规之外;2)通过预分析可观察的ROI的光谱特征扩展人脑能力;3)以实时或者接近实时的数据获取执行这些任务。 [0107] The main purpose of MHSI is based may readily interpret the values, or other image formats to collect and provide physiologically relevant data, in order to: 1) the human vision capabilities into conventional outside; 2) by means of pre-analysis observable ROI spectral characteristics of the human brain capacity expansion; 3) to real-time or near real-time data acquisition to perform these tasks. 算法的目标是帮助人类诊断和评估可观察受试者的状态。 Goal of the algorithm is to help people diagnose and assess the state of the subject can be observed.

[0108] MHSI是成功的,因为其利用反射电磁辐射(紫外-UV、可见光、近红外-NIR和红外-IR)承载较之视觉影像更多的信息,并且因为不同类型的组织反射、吸收和散射光的方式不同,所以超光谱立方体包含足够区分各种组织状态的信息。 [0108] MHSI is successful because of its use of the reflected electromagnetic radiation (UV -UV, visible, near-infrared and infrared -NIR -IR) carries more information than visual images, and because the organization of different types of reflection, absorption and scattered light of different ways, so the hyper-spectral cube contains enough information to distinguish between various tissue state. 在此,局部组织状态被用来收集与个体或者有机体的全身状态或者生理相关的数据。 Here, the local state is used to collect tissue or organism systemic and individual state or physiologically relevant data. MHSI是耐用的,因为其基于光谱曲线的少数几个一般属性(例如,斜率、偏移量、OxyHb,、DeoxyHb,和水);因此其就光谱覆盖率而言相对灵活,并且不敏感于特定的光波长。 MHSI is durable because it is based on a few general properties of the spectrum curve (e.g., slope, offset, OxyHb ,, DeoxyHb, and water); therefore relatively flexible in terms of coverage on the spectrum, and is not sensitive to a particular optical wavelength. MHSI是快速的,因为其使用快速图像处理技术,该技术允许在一个伪彩色图像中叠加吸收、散射(由斜率和偏移量得到)和氧合信肩、O MHSI is fast, because it uses fast image processing technology, which allows a pseudo-color image superimposed on the absorption, scattering (obtained from the slope and offset) and oxygenation letter shoulder, O

[0109] 图像立方体一般可以在I分钟内被收集,但是通常是在短的时间段内。 [0109] Usually cube image may be collected in I minute, but is usually within a short period of time. 图像处理技术的简单性允许以实时到接近实时的方式显示结果。 Simplicity of image processing technology allows real-time to near real-time display the results. MHSI是可容易解释的,因为其可以传递如下图像,在该图像中,颜色的不同反映了不同物质的浓度的梯度映射图,这反映了不同的组织类型、代谢、生理状态或者病症。 MHSI is easy to explain, because it can pass below the image, in the image, the different colors reflect different substance concentrations gradient map, which reflect different tissue types, metabolic, physiological state or condition. 该区分是渐变的,而不是二元的。 The distinction is gradual, rather than binary. 此外,结构的颜色和形状描绘了ROI中的组织的不同组成、生理或者代谢或者生存能力水平。 In addition, the color and shape of the structure depicts the different components of the organization's ROI, physiological or metabolic or viability level.

[0159] 优选地,数据预处理中的第三步骤是在每一个时间步长进行图像套准。 [0159] Preferably, the data preprocessing the third step is to perform image registration at each time step. 套准使得在不同的时刻获取的图像平移、旋转并且缩放,使得在每一个时刻拍摄的图像中的区别特征在每一个图像中处于同一空间位置。 Registration so that the image translation acquired at different times, rotating and scaling, such that each of the distinguishing characteristics in the image captured in a moment in the same spatial location in each image. 图像套准对于处于休克或者接近休克的病人尤其重要,因为病人可能由于疼痛和不舒服移动或者无意识地移动。 Image registration is especially important for access to the patient is in shock or shock, because the patient due to the pain and discomfort may move or move unconsciously. 如果需要,可以将校准器或者小的套准标记施加到皮肤上,以提供用于套准算法的区别特征。 If necessary, the calibrator or a small registration mark is applied to the skin to provide a distinguishing feature for registration algorithm. 在Freeman等的美国专利申请20040236229和美国临时申请60/717,188中对图像套准问题有更详细讨论。 In Freeman et al, U.S. Patent Application 20040236229 and U.S. Provisional Application No. 60 / 717,188 are discussed in more detail in the image registration problems.

[0160] 一旦图像被拍摄并且预处理被完成,优选地,数据预处理中的下一个步骤是分解数据,以提供对于在图像的每一个像素中存在的化学信号的估计。 [0160] Once an image is captured and the pretreatment is completed, preferably, the data preprocessing the next step is to decompose the data to provide the chemical signal at each pixel of the image present in the estimate. 除了超光谱数据之外,该分解步骤还需要对于每一个感兴趣的发色团(即,组织或者流体)的参比光谱。 In addition to the hyperspectral data, the decomposition step further need for an interest in each chromophore (ie, tissue or fluid) in the reference spectrum. 例如,对于血液氧合血红素、血液脱氧血红素和水所拍摄的光谱可以用于该分解处理(参见图3)。 For example, for blood oxyhemoglobin and blood deoxyhemoglobin spectra of water and can be taken for the decomposition treatment (see Figure 3).

[0161] 如果利用具有光分离器的系统(图I)记录超光谱数据,则超立方体中的每一个像素具有皮肤吸收光谱(一定程度上类似于图4中的光谱)。 [0161] If the use of the system has an optical splitter (Fig. I) recording hyperspectral data, the hypercube each pixel having a skin absorption spectrum (a spectrum similar to Figure 4 in a certain extent). 然后,分解处理一般可以被设计为受约束的优化问题,其中,在受到丰度值的自然可能范围的约束下,估计每一种化学物质的相对丰度。 Then, the decomposition may be designed to deal with the general problem of constrained optimization, in which, in the possible range by natural abundances of constraints, to estimate the relative abundance of each chemical substance. 但是,利用最小方差方案(对于每一个像素或者多个像素组成的区域)可以得到直接和大体地分解: However, the use of minimum variance program (for each pixel or a plurality of pixels of the region) can be obtained directly and substantially decompose:

[0162] Sij ( λ ) = Il ClijOxyHbO )+c2ijDexyHbO )+c3ij水(λ )+c4ijX (λ )+c5ij Il 2 分解得到对于所考虑的每一种化学物质的估计丰度的输出图像(在上述实例中,C1和C2是氧合血红素和脱氧血红素浓度的图像,而C3是水的图像)。 [0162] Sij (λ) = Il ClijOxyHbO) + c2ijDexyHbO) + c3ij water (λ) + c4ijX (λ) + c5ij Il 2 decomposition estimated abundance for each of the considered chemical output image (in the above instance, C1 and C2 are concentrations of oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin images, and C3 are images of water). 斜率和偏移分别由C4和C5表不。 The slope and offset by C4 and C5 respectively table does.

[0163] 在其中利用具有特别选定和/或经调制的光的系统(图2)记录超光谱数据的实施例中,利用来自每一个LED组的光来记录的数据图像代表在该波长范围内积分的发色团的浓度。 [0163] in which the use of an optical system having a specially selected and / or modulated (Fig. 2) records Example hyperspectral data, using the data representative of the image light from each of the LED groups to be recorded with a wavelength in the range concentration of credit chromophore. 例如,当用第2和4 LED组(其优选地被选择和调制来模拟或者部分模拟氧合血红素吸收光谱)照明白反射器时,所记录的数据图像代表在第2和4 LED组整个波长范围内积分的、对于照明的HSI系统响应。 For example, when used with 4 LED Group 2 (which preferably are selected and modulated to simulate or partial simulation oxyhemoglobin absorption spectrometry) data representative image when illuminated understand reflector, recorded at 2 and 4 LED groups throughout Integral wavelength range, the illumination of the HSI system response. 当用第2和4 LED组照明皮肤时,所记录的数据图像与从校准器获取的数据图像相差了在第2和4 LED组整个波长范围内积分的皮肤氧合血红素吸收量。 When using the 2 and 4 LED group lighting skin, the recorded image data and the image data acquired from the difference between the calibrator skin oxyhemoglobin absorption capacity and 4 LED groups over the entire wavelength range of the second integral. 与校准器数据图像进行参比的皮肤数据图像具有关于由氧合血红素导致的皮肤吸收的信息,此外还有关于斜率和偏移分量的信息。 Calibration data and reference image data image with skin on skin caused by oxyhemoglobin absorption of information, in addition to information about the slope and offset components. 对于用第3 LED组照明的情况进行类似的步骤,其中记录了由于脱氧血红素导致的皮肤吸收,此外还记录了斜率和偏移分量。 In the case of using the first set of 3 LED lighting similar steps, which records a result of the skin due to deoxyhemoglobin absorption, in addition to recording the slope and offset components. 对于第I LED组(其中氧合血红素和脱氧血红素在相似的浓度下具有相同吸收)的皮肤反应确定了皮肤中的总血红素浓度。 For the first I LED group (wherein oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin at similar concentrations with the same absorption) of the skin reaction to determine the total hemoglobin concentration in the skin. 得自第1、2、3和4 LED组的数据图像之间的差别允许评估斜率和偏移光谱分量,并且确认氧合血红素和脱氧血红素浓度。 Derived from the difference between the 2, 3 and 4 LED image data to allow assessment of the group between the slope and offset spectral components, and confirm the concentration of oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin. 最后,对于第5和6 LED组的皮肤响应和这两者之间的差别确定了水的浓度,并且允许评估组织水合水平。 Finally, differences in the skin in response to the 5th and 6 LED groups and between the two determines the concentration of water and allow to assess tissue hydration levels.

[0164] 得自所述LED组中的任意一组或者全部的数据可以被用于评估给定生理状态。 [0164] The LED group obtained from any one or all of the data set can be used to evaluate a given physiological state. 或者,所述LED组中的任意一组或者全部可以与其它光谱分离技术组合使用,以收集光谱的相似或者其它部分中的数据。 Alternatively, the LED group may be any of a group of or all of the separation in combination with the use of other spectroscopic techniques, or a similar data collection in other parts of the spectrum. 例如,可见光LCTF系统可以与类似于第5和6 LED组的LED系统一起使用,以在关于水浓度的红外数据上增加由可见光谱提供的数据(诸如血红素)。 For example, visible LCTF system can be used with similar groups 5 and 6 LED LED system to the infrared data on the concentration of water increases the data provided by the visible spectrum (such as hemoglobin).

[0165] 对于本发明,优选的是,至少组织氧合血红素和脱氧血红素被计算或者估计(还可利用诸如水丰度之类的其它量)。 [0165] For the present invention, it is preferred that at least tissue oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin is calculated or estimated (can also use other quantities such as the abundance of water and the like). 在这些被估计的丰度被分别表示为OxyHb和DeoxyHb的情况下,血液总血红素(Thb)可以从下式得到: In these estimated abundances are shown as the case where the OxyHb and DeoxyHb, total blood hemoglobin (Thb) can be obtained from the following formula:

[0166] THb = OxyHb+DeoxyHb。 [0166] THb = OxyHb + DeoxyHb.

[0167] 相对组织氧饱和度(SHSI02)可从下式得到: [0167] relative tissue oxygen saturation (SHSI02) can be obtained from the following formula:

[0168] ShsiO2 = 0xyHb/THb*100。 [0168] ShsiO2 = 0xyHb / THb * 100.

[0169] 注意,这些量(Thb和ShsiO2)是超光谱分解的伴随结果,并且如同它们与在医学文献中经常被引用的类似测量相关那样而被计算。 [0169] Note that these amounts (Thb and ShsiO2) is accompanied by hyper-spectral decomposition results, and as they relate to similar measurements in the medical literature is often cited as being the calculation. 而且,超光谱所得的数据图线可以被剪切,以去除极端值。 Moreover, hyperspectral data obtained graph can be cut, to remove outliers. 在从数据图像计算矩阵之前,可以采用利用低通滤波器(诸如Gaussian滤波器)的平滑来改善数据图像。 Before computing the matrix from the image data, can be used with a low-pass filter (such as a Gaussian filter) to improve smoothing image data.

[0170] 接着,在本发明用于评估休克的一个应用中,得到反映休克或者濒临休克的临床征候的指标。 [0170] Next, in one application of the present invention is used to evaluate the shock, the reflected shock or on the verge of clinical signs of shock index. 对于整个或者部分ROI执行附加的分析步骤,包括但不限于平均指标、不均匀性指标、色斑指标、时域指标以及组合的计算。 For the whole or part of the ROI to perform additional analysis steps, including but not limited to the average index, unevenness index stain index, and calculating a time domain index combination. 优选地,开头三个算法中的任何一个或者全部被用于得到这些休克相关指标。 Preferably, the beginning of the three algorithms are used for any or all of these shock obtain relevant indicators. 第4算法描述了休克反应的可能的病人后果或者严重性:可逆还是不可逆休克。 Section 4 describes the shock response algorithm possible consequences or severity of patients: reversible or irreversible shock.

[0171] 算法 [0171] algorithm

[0172] 第I算法对反映休克的临床征候的标记进行定量,其是对于整个图像或者整个ROI的特性标记,例如ROI的整个或者选定部分上的超光谱测量的平均值或分布。 [0172] Section I algorithm reflect clinical signs of shock quantitative marker, which is characteristic for the entire image or the entire ROI marker, e.g., an average or distribution of the hyperspectral measurement portion of the ROI of the whole or selected. 例如,出血性休克的早期临床征候是总血液量的下降,由此导致的皮肤特别是身体外周部分中的血液供应和血液氧合的下降。 For example, hemorrhagic shock early clinical signs of total blood volume is decreased, thereby resulting in the skin, especially the outer periphery of the body portion of the depression in the blood supply and blood oxygenation. 这是由于血液损失,以及身体通过限制血液流动到身体的外周部分来试图补偿休克、血容量过低或血液损失两者原因造成的。 This is due to loss of blood, and the body by limiting blood flow to the outer peripheral portion of the body to attempt to compensate for shock, hypovolemia, or blood loss between the two causes. 这通常导致可用于在休克的病人监测期间被成像区域的总的血液量和氧合血液量的下降。 This usually leads to can be used for the total amount of blood oxygenation and blood volume decreases during the imaging area of the patient monitor shock. 相反地,与到皮肤的低流量相关的,从可用的有限量的血液的氧提取更大,并且脱氧血红素相对升高。 Conversely, with the low-flow-related skin, from a limited amount of oxygen available have greater blood extraction, and the relative increase in deoxyhemoglobin. 给定所有形式的血红素的总的下降,此脱氧血红素的相对升高可以导致总脱氧血红素的升高、降低,或者导致在休克开始之前或者与之相关的的总脱氧血红素的相似水平。 Given the total of all forms of hemoglobin decreases, the relative increase in deoxyhemoglobin this can lead to elevated total deoxyhemoglobin, reduce, or causes the start or before the shock associated with the total deoxyhemoglobin similar levels.

[0173] 为了得到对于给定ROI的平均值,可以通过计算超光谱数据图像上的值的诸如平均值、中值、固定百分点测量之类的量,直接计算血液和/或组织氧输送、氧提取、氧饱和度、总血红素、或者水含量的总体量的变化。 [0173] In order to obtain an average value for a given ROI can be calculated by the average of values such as hyperspectral image data, the median amount of fixed points like measuring the direct calculation of blood and / or tissue oxygen delivery, oxygen extraction, the overall amount of oxygen saturation, total hemoglobin, or the water content changes. 对于此应用,从每一个分量数据图像得到单个数字。 For this application, to obtain a single digital image data from each component. 对于此情形,相对于点测量,数据图像的优点在于,由大量被平均的点提供的积分得到了更精确的估计。 For this case, with respect to the measurement point, the advantages of the image data that is provided by a large number of points Average point was more accurate estimate.

[0174] 图5示出了从示例性猪受试者得到的数据结果。 [0174] Figure 5 shows data results from an example porcine subject obtained. 对于在基线和在休克期间获得的氧饱和度的超光谱计算图像形成直方图。 For the calculation of the baseline and hyperspectral images obtained during shock oxygen saturation histogram is formed. 此直方图表面氧饱和度的平均值的减小提供了关于此受试者的循环休克的提示。 This decreases the average oxygen saturation histograms surface provided on this subject's circulatory shock tips.

[0175] 图6示出了由示例性人受试者得到的数据结果。 [0175] Figure 6 shows data results from an example human subject obtained. 在虚脱之前,总血红素急剧下降。 Before collapse, a sharp decline in the total hemoglobin.

[0176] 如果条件允许,可以在病人明显不处于休克状态时从其获得基线读数。 [0176] If conditions permit, you can get a baseline reading from when the patient is obviously not in a state of shock. 在此情况下,平均氧合等的变化可以与基线状态进行参比。 In this case, the change in the mean oxygenation can be carried out with the baseline reference. 当可能时,基线的使用是有利的,因为其帮助去除病人与病人之间的差异。 When possible, using the baseline is advantageous because it helps to remove the differences between the patient and the patient. 即使不用基线,顺序测量的趋势可以提供重要信息。 Even without a baseline measure of trends in order to provide important information. 在急救环境下,可能不能获得基线,并且基于原始(未标准化)的量,或者参比从多个其它个体得到的标准基线,进行对于休克检测的判断。 In emergency environment, may not be obtained at baseline, and based on the original (not standardized) amount, or baseline reference standard obtained from a plurality of other individuals, carried out for the shock detection judgment.

[0177] 由在NIR区域(950_1100nm)中的皮肤吸收估计的水含量随着人受试者经历低体压的下降而变化。 [0177] from the skin in NIR region (950_1100nm) absorption in the estimated water content as a human subject experiencing a low pressure drop varies body. 图8示出了在虚脱之前组织中的水浓度降低了几乎10%。 Figure 8 shows a prior prostration tissue water was reduced by almost 10%. 类似于在可见光范围内测量的总Hb和氧饱和度的标准差,水也是预测休克的最有效的标记之一,因为在虚脱的很久之前(在此情况下10分钟)其发生明显变化。 Standard Total Hb and oxygen saturation measurements in the visible range is similar to the difference in the water is one of the most effective marker shock prediction, because before the collapse of the long (in this case 10 minutes) which change significantly. 水在近IR区中测量,这在战场中是更有利的。 Water measured in the near-IR region, which is more advantageous battlefield.

[0178] 除了数据图像中的分量:血红素、氧合血红素、脱氧血红素、ShsiO2和H2O,的平均值变化之外,分量的数据图像中的分布和/或标准差也变化。 [0178] In addition to the image data components: outside hemoglobin, oxyhemoglobin, deoxyhemoglobin, ShsiO2 and H2O, the average change in the data of the image components in the distribution and / or standard deviation varies. 这些变化涉及与休克或者血容量过低相关的皮肤氧输送/提取和水合的不均匀模式的出现增多的情况。 These changes involve shock or low blood volume associated with skin oxygen delivery / extraction and hydration of the uneven pattern of number of cases.

[0179] 图7示出了从人受试者得到的数据结果。 [0179] Figure 7 shows the results of the data obtained from a human subject. 在血液动力学虚脱之前,ShsiO2图像中的不均匀性升高。 Before hemodynamic collapse, ShsiO2 image unevenness increases.

[0180] 第2算法对反映休克的临床征候的并且涉及氧输送/提取中的更局部的变化的标记(例如,皮肤的色斑)进行定量。 [0180] The second algorithm to reflect clinical signs of shock and involves oxygen delivery / extraction of a more marked local change (e.g., skin pigmentation) was quantified. 与氧合的点测量不同,超光谱成像能够拍摄关于色斑图案的信息。 And oxygenation of different measuring points, hyperspectral imaging can capture information about the stain pattern. 色斑的出现可以被检测,并且可以利用各种图像处理算法来表征色斑图案。 Stain occurs can be detected, and the pattern of spots may be characterized using various image processing algorithms. 下面描述了四种用于检测和评估色斑及其变化的独立方法。 The following describes the four independent methods for the detection and evaluation of the stain and change.

[0181] 作为用于评估色斑的第I方法,可以确定色斑图案的尺寸。 [0181] As the first method I used to evaluate the stain, you can determine the size of the stain pattern. 如前面所述,随着休克的邻近,整个HSI图像的不均匀性增加。 As previously described, with the shock of adjacent, non-uniformity increased HSI entire image. 可以在较小尺寸的区域估计增大的不均匀性的量度,诸如分布的标准差(std)或者基于百分点的测量(例如,图像的第75和第25的四分位值之间的差)。 Inhomogeneity measure can be estimated increases in the region's smaller size, such as the standard deviation of the distribution (std) or percentage based measurements (for example, the difference between the 75th and the first quartile of the image between 25) . 当目标区域与色斑图案尺寸相当时,区域内的分布降低(与在整个图像上的增大的std相比),反映了在色斑区域内的均匀性。 When an area of considerable size and pigmentation pattern, the distribution area is lowered (as compared to the entire image is increased std), reflected in the stain area uniformity. 作为ROI尺寸的函数的不均匀性的变化可以用于评估色斑图案的尺寸。 As unevenness ROI size change function can be used to assess the size of the stain pattern.

[0182] 作为用于表征色斑的第2方法,可以利用图像复杂度的量度表征色斑尺寸和形状。 [0182] As a second method for the characterization of stain, can be used to measure the complexity of the image characterization stain size and shape. 优选地,这可以对于具有高值的区域利用面积对周长量度。 Preferably, this can be for the region having a high value of use area on the perimeter measure. 更优选地,上述的数据图像(氧合等)可以经由图像处理技术被处理,以生成描述反应的“高”和“低”区域的二元图像。 More preferably, the above-described image data (oxygenation, etc.) can be processed via the image processing technique to generate the description of the reaction of "high" and "low" binary image area. 此二元图像可以利用多种方法来生成。 This two yuan image to generate a variety of methods can be used. 在一个实施例中,使用边缘检测方法来确定目标区域。 In one embodiment, the edge detection method used to determine the target area. 这些边缘然后被填充,以形成二元图像。 These edges are then filled, to form binary images. 在第二实施例中,图像首先被滤波,以去除低频波动。 In the second embodiment, the image is first filtered to remove low-frequency fluctuations. 然后利用Ostu方法或者相当的阈值方法,确定用于经滤波图像的阈值。 Then use Ostu method or a method equivalent threshold, determining a threshold value of the filtered image. 阈值用于确定二元图像中的“高”和“低”区域。 Threshold is used to determine two yuan image "high" and "low" area.

[0183] 一旦生成二元图像,可以得到所有“高”区域的面积和求和的周长。 [0183] Once generated binary image, you can get all the "high" area of the region and the summation of the perimeter. 这些参数的比值提供了对于色斑的量度。 The ratio of these parameters provides a measure for the stain. 如果大的“斑状”起斑区域存在于成像区域中,则它们将往往具有较低的周长对面积的比值。 If large "patchy" and spot region exists in the imaging region, they will tend to have a lower ratio of the perimeter of the area. 如果成像区域较均匀,则“高”和“低”区域将往往是小的,对应于从局部背景偏移的小的区域。 If the imaging region is uniform, the "high" and "low" area will tend to be small, and corresponds to a small area from the local background offset. 因此,这些较小区域的平均周长对面积比值小于起斑的受试者。 Therefore, the average perimeter of these smaller areas and spot area ratio is less than a subject.

[0184] 作为用于表征色斑的第3方法,可以利用滤波增强明显偏离平均值的相邻区域。 [0184] As a third method for the characterization of the stain, you can use filtering to enhance the apparent deviation from the mean of the adjacent area. 该方法利用了色斑的两个方面:第一,起斑区域通常具有明显不同于平均值的氧合或者其它值;第二,起斑区域通常较大而不是较小。 The method utilizes two stains: first, from the spot region typically has a value significantly different from the average, or other oxygenation; second, and spot area is usually larger rather than smaller. 在此方法中,首先形成二元图像,其确定超光谱图像中所有与平均值相差用户规定量的像素。 In this method, first, to form binary image, which determines the hyper-spectral image with an average value of all the difference between user-specified amount of pixels. 作为实例,可以被确定的区域是I)大于平均值加上若干倍的标准差;或者2)小于平均值加上若干倍的标准差。 As an example, the area may be determined is I) is several times greater than the mean plus the standard deviation; or 2) is several times smaller than the mean plus the standard deviation. 该方法不明确要求使用平均值;例如,可以使用与经低频滤波的图像版本的偏差。 The method does not specifically require the use of an average value; for example, the deviation of the image may be used by the low-frequency filtered versions of. 此初步二元图像可以确定具有极端值的区域。 This preliminary binary image can be determined with regional extreme values. 作为第二阶段,二元图像被滤波,以去除不与至少N个其它像素相连的像素,其中,N是用户选定参数,其被选择来代表对于起斑区域的最小生理合理尺寸。 In a second step, the binary image is filtered to remove the at least N pixels are not connected to the other pixels, wherein, N is a user selected parameter, which is selected to represent a reasonable size for the spot from the minimum physiological region. 此第二步骤得到明显不同于平均值的相连像素(即,起斑区域)的二元图像。 This is significantly different from the second step to obtain an average value of the pixel is connected to (i.e., from spot region) binary image. 然后,所有这样的区域的面积被求和,得到代表图像中的起斑程度的衡量标准。 Then, all the area of the region such are summed to obtain a representative image of the spot from the degree measure. 此方法的实例被示于图9。 Examples of this method is shown in Figure 9.

[0185] 作为表征色斑的第4方法,评估数据图像或者生理参数(诸如,血液氧合或者饱和度,或者水合状态)图像中色斑程度随时间的变化。 [0185] As a fourth method of stain characterization, evaluation data image or physiological parameters (such as blood oxygenation or saturation, or hydrated state) stain degree of variation over time in the image. 此方法利用了如下事实:由超光谱系统成像的生理参数因为身体试图补偿休克而动态变化。 This method takes advantage of the fact that: the physiological parameters hyperspectral imaging system because the body tries to compensate for shock and dynamic change. 皮肤色斑图案偏移,以保护血管收缩的区域中的组织可存活性,并且在休克之前或者随着休克进程,这样的偏移发生得更快。 Skin pigmentation pattern offset, in order to protect the region of vasoconstriction tissue viability, and as before the shock or shock process, this shift occurs faster.

[0186] 优选地,得到两个参数来测量色斑变化性,“斑点”和“时域”。 [0186] Preferably, two parameters were obtained to measure changes in stain resistance, "spot" and the "time domain." 为了表征这些参数,优选地将超光谱图像转化为“高”、“低”和零值的三值图像(参见图10的顶部原始图线,其中,绿色为零、红色和蓝色分别对应于ShsiO2的“高”和“低”值)。 In order to characterize these parameters, preferably ultra-spectral image into "high", the three-value image "low" and the zero value (see FIG. 10 of the top line of the original image, wherein, the green is zero, corresponding to red and blue, respectively ShsiO2 "high" and "low" values). 在该原始图线中的每一个图线对应于实验内(从基线开始并且朝向休克进展(最后之前的图像的LBNP = -90))的特定时间,并且最后的图像回到平衡。 Each plot line in the original image corresponding to the experiment (from baseline and progress towards the shock (the last previous image LBNP = -90)) of a particular time, and the last image back into balance. 斑点表示斑尺寸,并且其被计算为红色和蓝色像素的总和,并且被简化为一个数值,该数值在朝向虚脱的过程中随时间增大(图10下方图片中的绿线)。 Spot, said spot size, and it is calculated as the sum of the red and blue pixels, and is reduced to a value which in the process of collapse toward increased (Figure 10 below the picture of the green line) over time.

[0187] 衡量色斑变化性的时域参数是基于任何或者所有HSI测量或获得量的两个顺序图像之间的比较。 [0187] the time domain parameters to measure the change of the stain is based on any or all of the HSI measure or compare two sequential images obtained between the amount. 优选地,这些包括但不限于,OxyHb、DeoxyHb> Thb> ShsiO2、水和单波长图像(它们单独或者组合使用)。 Preferably, these include but are not limited to, OxyHb, DeoxyHb> Thb> ShsiO2, water and single wavelength image (either alone or in combination). 更优选地,其包括但不限于OxyHb和DeoxyHb数据图像。 More preferably, including but not limited to OxyHb and DeoxyHb data image. 在顺序上稍后的图像被套准到前一图像上,然后被与前一图像上减去(或者相反),并且分析所得图像。 Later in order to associate the image fitted on a previous image, and then subtracted (or vice versa) with the previous image, and analyzing the resultant image. 作为这样的分析的实例,在此,具有小的变化(例如,小于I的标准差)的区域被指定为零(在图10中的第二原始图线中的深蓝色)。 As an example of such an analysis region, and in this, with a small change (e.g., less than I standard deviation) is specified as zero (in FIG. 10 in the second line of the original image dark blue). 具有正变化的区域(例如,增大的氧合)被上以红色阴影,而负变化的区域(例如,减小的氧合)被上以蓝色阴影。 A region having a positive change (e.g., increase oxygenation) is the red shadow, while a negative change of area (e.g., reduced oxygenation) is a blue shade. 这些区域(正和负两者)然后用其最大幅值按比例衡量,并且在整个图像上进行求和。 These areas (both positive and negative) is then used to measure the maximum amplitude in proportion, and summed over the entire image. 于是,色斑的时域变化性被简化为一个数值,其可以作为时间的函数被作图(参见图10中的下方图片中的蓝线)。 Thus, the stain temporal variability is reduced to a value which can be plotted as a function of time (see Figure 10 in the image below in the blue line). 在许多情形中,时域分量(蓝线)的增大先于斑点分量(绿线)的增大。 In many cases, the time-domain component (blue line) increases to increases in the spot component (green line). 时域和斑点分量的水平提供了对于受试者在试图补偿休克时反应的快速程度的量度,并且是生理应激的指示。 The horizontal component of the time domain and provides a spot when subjects attempt to compensate for the shock response of a measure of how quickly, and is an indication of physiological stress. 优选地,这样的四种方法中的一种或者多种被使用来评估色斑。 Preferably, such a method of one of four or more is used to evaluate the stain. 更具体地,这些方法中的两种以上的方法可以组合来计算色斑指标。 More specifically, these methods two or more methods may be combined to calculate the stain index. 更优选地,斑点和时域方法被组合来计算时域色斑指标。 More preferably, the spot and time domain methods are combined to calculate the time-domain stain indicators.

[0188]用于检测休克的第3算法将两种前面描述的算法组合:整体图像分析和局部色斑分析。 Algorithm combinations [0188] for the detection of shock third algorithm two previously described: overall image analysis and analysis of local spots. 上面定量的反映休克的临床征候的所有标记被简化为一个单值,其依赖于受试者的生理和代谢状态随时间变化。 All labeling quantitation above reflect clinical signs of shock is reduced to a single value, which depends on the physiological and metabolic state of a subject changes over time. 这些数据的线性或者非线性组合接近用于特定受试者的超光谱休克指标(HyperSpectralShock Index,HSSI)量度。 Linear or non-linear combination of these data is close hyperspectral shock index (HyperSpectralShock Index, HSSI) measure for a particular subject. 作为实例,使用相对HSSI标度(其中,测量值大于I被认为是休克的指示),利用峰值和下降,可以在所绘制的图线上见到濒临脉管虚脱的证据。 As an example, the use of relatively HSSI scale (where I is greater than the measured value is considered to be indicative of shock), the use of the peak and fall, evidence can be seen in the verge of vascular collapse plotted line. HSSI充当了非常灵敏的循环调控的衡量标准,并且当存在由于升高的LBNP水平导致的初始全身性损伤时上升,然后当补偿机制发生时回落。 HSSI act as a very sensitive measure of cycle regulation, and when there is a rise due to elevated levels of lead LBNP initial systemic damage, then fall when the compensation mechanisms occur.

[0189] 最后一个算法描述用于检测图像中的特征的方法,所述特征可以指示休克反应的可能的病人后果或者严重性:可逆或者不可逆休克。 [0189] Finally, an algorithm is described a method for detecting features in the image, and the characteristics may indicate the possible consequences of the patient or the severity of the shock response: reversible or irreversible shock. 如本文前面所述,通过揭示皮肤的均匀变化和色斑,多种测量支持对于休克的早期检测。 As mentioned earlier in this article, by revealing uniform skin pigmentation changes and a variety of measuring support for the early detection of shock. 目前的研究也已经示出了超光谱图像通过揭示皮肤中的微循环模式的变化,可以提供关于病人可存活性的提示。 The current study has shown a hyperspectral image by revealing changes in the skin microcirculation patterns can provide hints about the patient can survive in nature. 图11示出了猪受试者在出血之前(左侧图片,27分钟之前)、在休克期间(在最初出血之后62分钟)、以及复生后(在最初出血之后2小时)的示例性超光谱氧合血红素图像。 Figure 11 shows porcine subjects prior to hemorrhage (left-hand panel, 27 minutes before), during shock (62 minutes after the initial bleeding), and after resuscitation (two hours after the initial bleeding) exemplary hyperspectral oxyhemoglobin images. 受试者已经发展了大的快速变化的色斑图案,这可能与交替的高和低氧合血红素水平相关。 The subject has developed rapidly changing large stain patterns, which may be associated with alternating high and low oxygen levels close heme. 在复生之后循环模式已经恢复(比较图11中的第3和第I个图像)。 After the mode has been restored back to life cycle (compare Fig. 11 in the third and I images). 另一个动物受试者(图12)已经发展成ShsiO2图像中的明显的“羽毛状”图案。 Another animal subject (Fig. 12) has been developed into ShsiO2 image obvious "feathery" pattern. 该图案在该过程中死亡或者对于该测试过程没有表现出强劲恢复的许多测试受试者中发展,并且似乎指示了不利后果的更大可能性。 The pattern of death in the process or procedure for the test did not show the number of test subjects in the development of strong recovery, and it seems more likely to indicate the adverse consequences. 将这样的指示提供给医疗人员可能是很有价值的。 Thus providing an indication to the medical personnel may be valuable.

[0190] 通过使用图像处理方法来检测可能是“羽毛状”的图像中的边缘和特征,可以检测在图12中观察到的羽毛状图案。 [0190] By using the image processing method to detect may be "feathered" edges in the image and the feature can be detected observed in FIG. 12 feathery pattern. 除了上述的表征色斑的方法(不同尺寸ROI的分布值,面积对周长比、色斑斑点的短轴对长轴的比),可以应用另一种可能的实施方式。 In addition to the above-described method of characterizing stain (ROI of different size distribution value, the area ratio of the perimeter, pigmentation spots on the major axis than the minor axis), can apply another possible embodiment. 可以构建一个图像模板,该图像模板可以被构造成类似于整个羽毛状特征或者其子部分(例如,其单个分枝)。 Can build a template image, the template image may be configured similar to the whole or a sub-section feathering characteristic (e.g., their individual branches). 此模板的缩放和旋转版本可以被与超光谱图像相关,以生成“匹配”分数。 Scaled and rotated version of this template can be associated with hyper-spectral images to create a "match" scores. 在图像的区域中的高匹配分数的出现可以被当作在图像中出现“羽毛状”的指示,并且将得到被提供给医疗人员的警告。 In regions of the image of the appearance of a high matching score can be used as appearing in the image "feathered" instructions, and will be provided to give a warning to the medical personnel. 此图像处理方法与由Delanoy等描述的方法类似,但是其之前没有被应用于休克的超光谱检测、可存活性评估、复生充分性的评估或者生理状态的其它评价。 This image processing method similar to the method described by Delanoy the like, but hyperspectral detector which has not previously been applied to the shock, viability assessment, other evaluation or assessment of the adequacy of resuscitation physiological state.

[0204] 在表I中给出了实验方案。 [0204] gives the experimental protocol in Table I below. 在术后稳定期间(1-2小时)之后,收集基线数据。 During postoperative stability (1-2 hours), the collection of baseline data. 然后,对出血组中的动物(HEM,n = 9)用注射器通过颈动脉管进行抽血。 Then, bleeding group of animals (HEM, n = 9) with a syringe tube for blood through the carotid artery. 以恒定的速率,Iml/kg/min,进行3次抽血,每次10ml/kg。 At a constant rate, Iml / kg / min, 3 times a blood sample, each 10ml / kg. 血被收集到包含CPDA抗凝血剂的袋中。 Blood was collected into a bag containing an anticoagulant CPDA. 在三次10分钟的出血时间段的每一个之后紧接15分钟的观察时间段。 Three times in every 10 minutes after the bleeding time period immediately after the observation period of 15 minutes. 在第三观察时间段之后,通过静脉内灌注I. 5倍出血量的LR,使得动物复生。 After the third observation period, by intravenous infusion I. five times the amount of bleeding LR, making the animal back to life. LR复生时间段的持续时间为25分钟。 LR resuscitation duration time period of 25 minutes. 然后,根据需要施予超过初始复生量的额外液体,以使得心率和血压朝基线值恢复。 Then, if necessary, lend more than the initial amount of extra fluid resuscitation, heart rate and blood pressure to allow recovery toward baseline values. 在25分钟LR灌注时间段之后紧接着30分钟的观察时间段,然后是其中出血被回注的25分钟时间段。 After 25 minutes LR infusion period followed by an observation period of 30 minutes, followed by re-injection in which the bleeding time of 25 minutes. 之后对动物再观察I小时,然后实施安乐死。 I then observed in animals after hours, and then euthanized. 利用流体加热器进行血和LR的回注。 The use of blood and fluid heater LR reinjection. 获得整个内后肢的HSI图像。 Get the whole picture in the hindlimb of HSI.

[0205] 对照组中的动物经历相似的手术准备,并且接受IOOml/小时的维持LR灌注。 [0205] Animals in the control group experienced a similar surgical preparation, and to accept IOOml / h LR maintain perfusion. 在以下时间点获取数据:基线、在每次10ml/kg抽血之后、在LR复生之后和在血回注之后。 Access to data at the following time points: baseline, after each 10ml / kg blood, after LR resuscitation and blood back after the injection.

[0206] 抽血导致心动脉收缩压的早期下降,这在第一次抽血之后在统计上变得明显,并且一直保持下降直到LR复生之后。 [0206] lead to early heart artery systolic blood drop, which became apparent after the first blood sample statistically, and kept declining until after LR resuscitation. 心率随抽血提高,但是是以延迟的模式——仅仅在第二次出血期间变得明显;其在出血回注之后恢复到对照水平。 Heart rate increase with the blood, but is delayed mode - only become apparent during the second bleeding; it returned to control levels after bleeding reinjection.

[0207] 所有HEM动物随血液损失示出了平均ShsiO2的下降;这些变化在第三次出血之后变得明显。 [0207] All animals with blood loss HEM shows a decline in the average ShsiO2; these changes become apparent after the third bleeding. 它们在灰度ShsiO2图片上很明显,但是对于肉眼不明显。 They obviously on gray ShsiO2 pictures, but not obvious to the naked eye. HSI OxyHb以及动脉碱过量和氧的混合静脉饱和度的减小在第2次出血之后变得明显。 HSI OxyHb and reduce arterial base excess and mixed venous oxygen saturation after the 2nd bleeding becomes apparent. 这些变化通过复生全部可逆。 Through all these changes reversible rebirth.

[0208] 由在可见波长区域中的超光谱成像得到的皮肤的ShsiO2和OxyHb图像的平均强度在出血性休克期间减小,并且在麻醉猪的复生期间恢复。 [0208] by the hyperspectral imaging in the visible wavelength region obtained average intensity ShsiO2 skin and OxyHb images decreases during hemorrhagic shock and resuscitation in anesthetized pigs during recovery. 这些变化与在若干侵入获得的变量中观察到的那些大致类似,包括心动脉收缩压、动脉碱过量和氧的混合静脉饱和度。 These changes were observed in the variable number of invasive broadly similar to those obtained, including mixed venous saturation heart artery systolic pressure, arterial base excess and oxygen. 但是,假定HSI提供关于血液动力学障碍和生理状况的额外信息,并且可以与HSI提高的更早的关于血液动力学障碍和濒临虚脱的信息相关联,预计缺少紧密的相关性。 However, it is assumed to provide additional information about the dynamics HSI disorders and physiological status of the blood, and may improve the HSI earlier hemodynamic disorders and on the verge of collapse associated with information about the expected lack of a significant correlation.

[0209] 图5示出了得自示例性猪受试者的数据结果。 [0209] Figure 5 shows an exemplary amazing since porcine subjects the data results. 形成在基线处和在休克期间获得的氧饱和度的超光谱计算图像的直方图。 Formed in the histogram hyperspectral image is calculated at baseline and during shock obtain oxygen saturation. 直方图示出了氧饱和度的平均值提供了关于对于此受试者的循环休克的提示。 Histogram shows the average value of the oxygen saturation provides information on the subject's circulatory shock for this prompt.

[0210] 在氧饱和度图像中,每一个像素的亮度与该像素的ShsiO2强度成正比。 [0210] In the oxygen saturation level image, ShsiO2 proportional to the intensity of each pixel and the luminance of the pixel. 基线图像和在第三次出血后的时间段期间获得的图像都被包括了。 Baseline image and the image during a time period after the third bleeding obtained are included. 在这些图像中,图像强度的减小是明显的。 In these images, the image intensity is reduced significantly. 定性地,一些动物但不是全部,在休克期间表现出色斑的增多,这在氧饱和度图像上也是明显的。 Qualitatively, some animals, but not all, during shock exhibit stain increase, which on the oxygen saturation level image is obvious. 这些变化都是对于肉眼不明显的。 These variations are not apparent to the naked eye. 定量地,这些ShsiO2图像的平均灰度强度随着抽血线性下降,在第三次出血之后较之对照动物变得明显减小,并且通过复生恢复到对照水平。 Quantitatively, the average gray intensity image ShsiO2 decreases linearly with blood, after the third bleeding becomes significantly reduced compared with the control animals, and returned to control levels by rebirth.

[0211] 对于ROI的OxyHb拟合系数的平均值也随着出血线性下降,但是其表现出更早的统计上的明显下降(在第二次出血之后),其也通过复生恢复。 [0211] For the average OxyHb fit factors ROI also decreases linearly with the bleeding, but it showed a statistically significant decrease earlier (after the second bleeding), which also passed back to life recovery. 同时,对于ROI的平均DeoxyHb拟合系数在第三次出血期间和之后似乎趋向于上升,但是这些变化不明显。 Meanwhile, for the average fit factor DeoxyHb ROI in the third period after bleeding and tends to rise seems, but these did not change significantly. 作为色斑出现的程度的粗略指标,氧饱和度图像的灰度直方图的标准差似乎随着出血而增大,但是这不是统计意义上明显的。 As the extent of the stain appears rough indicator, the standard deviation of oxygen saturation histogram of the image seems to increase with the bleeding, but this * is not statistically significant. 激光多普勒成像显示随着血损失对于ROI的皮肤血流线性下降,这在第三次出血之后变得明显,并且通过复生可逆。 Laser Doppler imaging displays with respect to blood loss ROI skin blood flow decreases linearly, which becomes apparent after the third bleeding, and by resuscitation reversible.

[0212] 执行线性回归,以检查氧的混合静脉饱和度和ShsiO2之间的可能的关系。 [0212] perform a linear regression to the possible relationship between mixed venous oxygen saturation checks and ShsiO2 between. 该分析表明了线性关系,具有0.12的较低的1*2(?<0.001,(^=114)。与心动脉收缩压的相关性是类似的(r2 = O. 14, P < O. OOLdf = 202)。虽然激光多普勒图像强度似乎遵循与ShsiO2的相似的时间进程,但是在线性回归中2个变量之间没有关系(r2 = 0.01, p = 0. 312,df =112)。 The analysis shows that the linear relationship, with a low of 0.12 * 2 (? <0.001, (^ = 114). Systolic blood pressure and heart are similar correlation (r2 = O. 14, P <O. OOLdf = 202). Although the intensity of the laser Doppler images seem to follow a similar time course and ShsiO2, but there is no linear regression relationship between two variables (r2 = 0.01, p = 0. 312, df = 112).

[0213] 在本专利中描述的休克监测方法采用了超光谱成像。 [0213] Shock monitoring methods described in this patent uses a hyperspectral imaging. 在此技术中,生成了具有每一个个体像素中的固有的光谱数据的二维图像。 In this technique, generates a two-dimensional image with each individual pixel in the inherent spectral data. 在优选的实施例中,每一个像素的光谱与各种化学物质的存在和浓度相关。 In a preferred embodiment, the spectrum of each pixel presence and concentration of various chemical substances related. 此数据被解释为这些物质在表面中的丰度。 This data is interpreted as the abundance of these substances in the surfaces. 这具有与各种生理状况的高相关性,并且提供了改善代谢监测的可能性(图11)。 This has various physiological conditions of high correlation, and offers the possibility of improved metabolic monitoring (Fig. 11).

[0214] 利用超光谱成像可以观察到若干种对于休克的反应(如在猪受试者的血量减少性休克中所见到的)。 [0214] The use of hyperspectral imaging can be observed for several shock response (such as in pig's blood to reduce shock subjects as seen). 第一,在许多受试者中观察到总氧合水平(或者氧饱和度)降低。 First, in many subjects observed in the total level of oxygenation (or oxygen saturation) is reduced. 第二,在若干受试者的皮肤中观察到色斑的出现。 Second, the skin of a subject in a number of observed spots appear. 这是已知的休克指示,并且是由于在身体试图补偿引起生理应激的事件时血流的微循环模式的变化导致的。 This is a known indication of shock, and is given in the body attempts to compensate for changes caused by physiological stress events microcirculation blood flow patterns caused. 最后,可以发生独特的循环模式变化,导致“羽毛状”图案(图12)。 Finally, a unique circulation pattern can occur changes, resulting in "feathery" pattern (Fig. 12). 这些变化的循环模式似乎与不好的后果相关,因此提供了对于病人将进入不可逆休克的可能性的量度。 These changes seem cyclic pattern associated with bad consequences, thus providing the possibility for the patient to enter a measure of irreversible shock.

[0215] HSSI是4个标量因子的非线性组合,所述4个标量因子针对每一个动物在每一个时间步长上由应用于超立方体的图像处理技术获得。 [0215] HSSI is non-linear combination of four scalar factor, said four scalar factor for each animal at each time step is applied to obtain the image processing technique hypercube. 因子中的两个(平均和分布)是基于对于整个目标区域(ROI)的分析。 The two factors (average and distribution) are based on the entire target area (ROI) analysis. 其它2个因子(斑点(BLOBS)和时域偏移(TEMPERAL)是基于确认组织的氧合模式、其幅值、横向延伸和变化频率的特征分析。为了总结得自全部14个受试者的数据,我们显示了对于每一个时间步长的作为时间的函数的生理参数平均值(心率和心收缩血压,左侧两个图片)以及超光谱参数(平均值,分布,BLOC以及TEMP,右侧的图片),并连同标准差(图13)。在此,蓝线代表6个对照受试者,并且黑线代表8个出血受试者。如果我们使用140的心率(人〜110)作为休克的衡量标准,则我们看到在第I次出血后50分钟处见到该事件。如果我们使用70的心脏收缩血压(人〜100)作为休克的衡量标准,则我们在第I次出血后35分钟处见到该事件。利用大于I的超光谱休克指标(HSSI),在第I次出血中的5分钟中指明了明显出血。为了避免比较对于阈值的依赖性,我们构建了受试者工作特性曲线(ROC),其估计通过三个参数:心率、心脏收缩血压以及HSSI确认休克的灵敏度和特异性(图14)。 The other two factors (spot (BLOBS) and time-domain offset (TEMPERAL) confirm tissue oxygenation based mode, the amplitude and frequency characteristics of the lateral extension and variation analysis. To summarize from all 14 subjects data, we show that for each time step as a function of physiological parameters, the mean time of (blood pressure, heart rate and cardiac contractility, two pictures on the left) and hyper-spectral parameters (mean, distribution, BLOC and TEMP, right side picture), and standard deviation (Fig. 13). Together with this, the blue line represents six control subjects, and the black line represents eight bleeding subjects. If we use the heart rate 140 (human ~110) as a shock metrics, we see that after the first 50 minutes of bleeding at the time I saw the event. If we use 70, systolic blood pressure (~ 100 people) as a measure of shock, then we are bleeding after the first 35 times I minutes at the event to see. I use more than hyperspectral shock index (HSSI), at the time I bleeding in 5 minutes indicated significant bleeding. In order to avoid the dependence of the threshold for comparison, we constructed a receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC), which is estimated by three parameters: heart rate, systolic blood pressure, and HSSI confirmation shock sensitivity and specificity (Fig. 14).
