Pre-hospital care for stroke and trauma
Paper in proceedings, 2015

Pre-hospital care for stroke and trauma remains one of the global challenges., Each year around 15 million people each year suffer a stroke. Only a small fraction of stroke patients who could benefit from thrombolytic treatment reach diagnosis and treatment in time. To increase this low figure we have developed microwave technology aiming to differentiate hemorrhagic from ischemic stroke patients in a pre-hospital setting.
