Quick, Cheap & Easy Bedside Diagnosis of Brain Injury

From Medgadget:

Infrascannerâ„¢ is a hand-held, non-invasive, near-infrared (NIR) based mobile imaging device to detect brain hematoma at the site of injury within the "golden hour". This refers to the period following head trauma when pre-hospital analysis is needed to rapidly assess the neurological condition of a victim. Pending FDA clearance, the Infrascannerâ„¢ will be an affordable, accurate and clinically effective screening solution for head trauma patients in settings where timely triage is critical. It is intended to aid the decision to proceed with other tests such as head Computed Tomography (CT) scans. In environments where access to CT scan is restricted or not available, Infrascannerâ„¢ will facilitate surgical intervention decisions.
