New AI-enabled, optical fiber sensor device could help monitor brain injury

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

A new AI-enabled, optical fiber sensor device developed at Imperial College London can measure key biomarkers of traumatic brain injury simultaneously.

The “promising” results from tests on animal tissues suggest it could help clinicians to better monitor both and patients’ response to treatment than is currently possible, which indicate the high potential for future diagnostic trials in humans.

People who experience a serious blow to the head, such as during road traffic accidents, can suffer (TBI)—a leading cause of death and disability worldwide that can result in long-term difficulties with memory, concentration and solving problems.
