Portable brain imaging

Portable brain imaging

Cortirio’s mission is to save lives by developing low-cost, portable brain imaging. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common cause of death and life-long disability amongst the under 40s. Current brain imaging technology is non-portable and expensive, causing delays to treatment and costing lives. The problem is even more acute in lower income countries: two-thirds of the world’s population lack access to basic medical imaging. Cortirio are developing a portable headband that enables diagnosis at the scene of an injury. Our technology uses infrared light to image blood at high resolution and automatically detect injuries. As we don’t use X-ray radiation, scans can be run continuously to alert staff if a patient needs attention, much as a heart rate monitor raises an alarm if someone’s heart stops. Our product could save millions of lives lost to head injuries, but the technology behind it could do even more. Our roadmap includes stroke, age-related decline and mental health.
