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.
Patient measurement is completed within 3-5 minutes.
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.
In patients with Epidural, Subdural and Intracerebral hematomas: Sensitivity = 88% / Specificity = 91%.
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).Research & Publications
