Join the March PCRF Discussion: Can microwave technology help EMS diagnose hemorrhagic traumatic brain injury and stroke?

March 10, 2017
Please join the PCRF Journal Club on Monday, March 13, 2017 at 12:00 PM (CST) for this month's discussion:

Can microwave technology help EMS diagnose hemorrhagic traumatic brain injury and stroke?

Candefjord et al. used simulated blood in a plastic brain, to see if a microwave headset could detect it. Trials are underway using multiple technologies to identify concussions, TBI and strokes. The use of blood-based point-of-care biomarkers (measured with devices such as the iStat®), transcranial doppler (TCD) using ultrasound helmets, eye tracking helmets, and cognitive assessment tools such as SCAT-3, and imPACT™ computerized assessments show increased promise of detecting brain injury. Join the principle investigator Dr. Candefjord and other members of the PCRF to discuss this exciting research.
 
The Journal Club discussion will begin at 12:00 PM (CST). We look forward to having you join us! Please register now.
