Abstract

A mobile electromagnetic tomography brain scanner prototype was developed, with the aim of the first mobile bed-side application of the technology for human brain imaging in a clinical setting. The usability and safety of the scanner was ensured to fulfill the requirements for clinical study operation. The mobile electromagnetic scanner was successfully put through its first pilot feasibility clinical study on healthy volunteers and real stroke subjects. The goal was to prove safety and feasibility of the technology for operation in the clinical setting, as well as gathering the first indication of its ability to detect and differentiated between ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. The outcome is a significant step towards a safe and clinically viable EMT solution, where the scanner was proved to be safe and usable in healthy volunteers and real patients and first indications of its ability to detect brain pathology in stroke patients.
