Infrascanner

Brain hematoma detection in the palm of your hand.

Every minute counts following a head trauma. The damage can be severe.

Fortunately with the world’s only handheld brain injury diagnostic device you and your team have the ability to get accurate results within five minutes.

There is no faster way to detect triage, subdural, epidural & intracerebral hematomas.

How it works

The Infrascanner 2000 measures the difference in NIR light absorption at corresponding locations on the left and right sides of the head.

The detection depth is superficial (within 3.5 cm of the skin surface), where blood migrates in most cases of bleeding. It compares the left and right side of the brain in four different areas.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Patient measurement is completed within 3-5 minutes.

WHAT DOES IT DETECT?

Detects hematomas greater than 3.5 cc in volume.
Detects hematomas up to 2.5 cm deep from the surface of the brain or 3.5 cm from skin surface.

HOW ACCURATE IS IT?

In patients with Epidural, Subdural and Intracerebral hematomas: Sensitivity = 88% / Specificity = 91%.

Background

69 million individuals world wide estimated to sustain a TBI each year. (source; National Library of Medicine and National Centre for Biotechnology Information.) *

InfraScan Inc. developed the Infrascanner 2000 to provide a rapid evaluation of head trauma patients with possible intracranial haemorrhage. The technology is portable and non-invasive, allowing for repeated monitoring without concern for radiation dose. The Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the United States Martine Corps (USMC) sponsored the development of the Infrascanner 2000.

The Infrascanner 2000 is the world’s only handheld brain injury diagnostic device (TGA, WAND and FDA approved).

The value of Infrascanner in sports medicine

Various sports related brain trauma injuries continue to grow around the world.

In contact sports like football, rugby, soccer and combat amongst others, the Infrascanner 2000 can provide side-line diagnostics and help aid in the decision to take injured athletes to the hospital or trauma centre.

The Russian boxing team & Algerian Olympic Team included an Infrascanner 2000 in their team medical equipment during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
