Portable diagnosis of brain injuries
Traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of death and disability among the under 40s. Our portable scanners can be used at the scene of the incident, or in the ambulance, to rapidly diagnose traumatic brain injury. Saving time saves brain function, preventing disability and death.
Functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a tool that has been used in medical research for many years. Cortirio’s technology increases the spatial resolution of fNIRS to the level of MRI and CT scanning, allowing fNIRS to be used in medical diagnosis.
