Portable MRI device offers key data for stroke treatment
Yale University has found in a study that a portable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device could aid in detecting intracranial hemorrhages associated with stroke.
The Portable Point-of-Care MRI system provides potentially life-saving data, especially in areas or cases where access to advanced brain imaging scans is limited.
The team is currently examining the ability of portable MRI technologies in detecting and monitoring head trauma and brain tumors. They will also investigate the use of such devices in evaluating brain health in individuals with risk factors, including high blood pressure.
