Wireless signals could transform brain trauma diagnostics

Traumatic brain injury

New device uses coils to transmit and receive electromagnetic signals, and a computer algorithm analyzes the data to determine whether there is brain swelling or bleeding. The device analyzes data from low energy electromagnetic waves that are similar to those used to transmit radio and mobile signals. The technology, described in the May 14 issue of the journal PLOS ONE, could potentially become a cost-effective tool for medical diagnostics and to triage injuries in areas where access to medical care, especially medical imaging, is limited.
