MedTech West researchers´ article reviewed in leading scientific journal within patient care in the prehospital setting

The article Microwave technology for detecting traumatic intracranial bleedings: Tests on phantom of subdural hematoma and numerical simulations published in October 2016 in Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing was selected for “Research Review – What current studies mean to EMS” in the scientific journal JEMS (Journal of Emergency Medical Services). JEMS is known to being the leading providers of information for the improvement... Read More

The microwave helmet can be used for rapid detection of intracranial hematomas in patients with traumatic brain injuries

In a recently published scientific article, researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, and the Sahlgrenska University Hospital, present results from the initial patient studies that were completed in 2016. The study shows a new application for microwave technology in health care. Microwaves have previously been used to distinguish stroke caused by bleeding from stroke caused by a clot.... Read More

New clinical study demonstrates that the microwave helmet “Strokefinder” can be used for a rapid detection of intracranial bleeding in traumatic brain injuries

A recently published scientific paper shows that health care professionals get vital information and can quickly decide on appropriate treatment if patients are examined using a microwave helmet. The study demonstrates a new health care application for microwave measurements. Previously, microwave measurements have been used to distinguish stroke caused by bleeding in the brain from stroke caused by cloth. The new study shows that the technology... Read More
