NEUROLOGY DEVICES AID IN DIAGNOSING NEUROLOGIC PROBLEMS
This Program is already in place for people over the world to place a call to diagnose Parkinsonism, with 99% accuracy HERE
In Germany, an ambulance designated for stroke victims is being developed, which as both a portable CT, as well as on site lab facilities, to allow rapid adminstration of clot-busting meds, if indicated.
The system, developed by San Diego-based NeuroVigil called “iBrain” utilizes a headband with a receiver to pick up varying brain waves, and uses an computer algorithm called SPEARS to analyze the brain emanations and encode them for a text-based speech reader.
Smartphone Being Researched as Brain Scanner
At the University of Denmark, research is being conducted on using a Smartphone with specialized progamming and a headset to do brain scans! The system provides “a fully portable EEG based real-time functional brain scanner including stimulus delivery, data acquisition, logging, brain state decoding and 3D activity visualization.”
See the above video, and the below video to understand this technology. Of course, this is in the beta-phase, but it goes to show a trend toward more imaging studies being less invasive.
