Portable Microwave-Based Technology May Speed Stroke Diagnosis (BBC News / IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering)

Summary Diagnosing and treating stroke as quickly as possible is important, to minimise avoidable brain damage. Researchers have devised an experimental prototype helmet using microwave technology which can distinguish between bleeds (haemorrhagic stroke) and clots (ischaemic stroke) quickly, so potentially … Continue reading
