The future of non invasive detection of intracranial hemorrhage is here.
Combining powers of light, electronics, mechanics and machine learning to study deep tissues non invasively and bring hospital grade diagnosis to point of care.
Point of care screening device for quick detection of intracranial hemorrhage
Deep brain spectroscopy to investigate the brain tissue in-vivo
The optical methods used for neuromonitoring are based on emission of near-infrared light (NIR) at the surface of the head and detection of remitted light at a distance of several centimeters. The emitted light undergoes two main processes: scattering and absorption. Scattering depends on the cellular structure of the tissue and leads to stochastic movement of photons in the medium, as described by diffusion theory. The strong scattering and good transparency of tissue layers of the head for NIR light result in sufficient re-emission of photons back to the surface to allow for detection of photons that penetrated the brain cortex. The absorption is mainly associated with the interaction of photons with chromophores in the tissue, including hemoglobin, water, lipids, and a variety of proteins (such as cytochrome c).
CEREBO’s proprietary optoelectronic configuration deploying diffuse reflectance spectroscopy detects the presence of intracranial hemorrhage non invasively.
CEREBO’s novel application of near infrared spectroscopy makes it possible to detect intracranial hemorrhage non invasively. It is an established science that correlates optical density of near infrared light with hemoglobin concentration.
The advanced mathematics based algorithm eliminates the need of expert data interpretation. Hence the algorithm makes it usable by a common man with minimal usage training.
The self calibration and intuitive user interface makes the device very easy to use.
The miniaturized hardware is designed to bridge the limitations of traditional tools that are bulky, expensive, and need much greater infrastructure support like air conditioning to provide point-of-care detection that will assist in triaging suspected TBI patients in military, sports, and emergency or urgent care environments both in India and internationally.
