Microwave Diagnostics Ahead: Saving Time and the Lives of Trauma and Stroke Patients
Journal article, 2018

Microwave technology has the potential to revolutionize how, when, and what care can be delivered to patients with acute, life-threatening medical conditions. The prospects are that microwave systems can both improve diagnostic ability and accuracy and enable earlier diagnosis. Early diagnosis is a key factor in acute situations, especially when breathing and circulation are affected. Conventional imaging modalities used for diagnostics, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and X-ray computed tomography (CT), are powerful but normally available only at hospitals.
