THE FUTURE OF STROKE DIAGNOSIS
Coming Soon To A Hospital Near You.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Blood has a lot of ions that make it conductive. In ischemic stroke, you block an artery preventing blood flow. In hemorrhagic stroke, you have too much blood in a certain area. By generating small magnetic fields, the sensor works like a metal detector and moving the sensor around the brain finds these areas of too much or too little flow. It’s that simple!
HOW FAST DOES IT WORK?
Early studies with the sensor have shown a diagnostic time between 1 and 2.5 minutes. As we move forward, much of this scanning will be automated, making scanning even faster.
HOW DO I KNOW WHERE A STROKE MAY BE LOCATED?
As the sensor moves around the brain, it remembers its position. That means that once you’ve finished scanning, you can generate a predictive image of the stroke’s location in seconds.
Our full-time software engineering team has been working on novel algorithms using machine learning and AI approaches. This software fuels the diagnostic accuracy and imaging capabilities of the StrokeDx sensor.
