Microwave system can aid early point-of-care diagnosis by showing localization and size of intracranial haemorrhage after stroke or trauma

https://youtu.be/jpbE6R5e2OI -We believe that such information about localization and approximate size of bleedings, provided by the microwave device in a point-of-care situation, is an important development, says Mikael Elam. It can facilitate the clinical acceptance of a microwave-based diagnosis, by enabling a direct comparison to the clinical symptoms of the patient.    Principles for microwave…

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…
