An optoacoustic technique was proposed for real time monitoring of cerebral blood oxygenation. The optoacoustic system included a nanosecond Nd:YAG laser, an optoacoustic probe for irradiation and detection of laser-induced waves in the superior sagittal sinus (SSS) and a laptop computer for signal registration and processing. The parameters of the optoacoustic waves were found to be linearly dependent on blood oxygenation.
