A transportable brain-scanning helmet that could be used for rapid brain injury assessments of stroke victims is being tested by scientists, reports TheGuardian.com. The wearable device, known as the PET helmet, is a miniaturised version of the hospital positron emission tomography (PET) scanner, a doughnut-shaped machine which occupies the volume of a small room. Julie Brefczynski-Lewis, the neuroscientist leading the project, said that the helmet could dramatically speed up diagnosis and make the difference between a positive outcome and devastating brain damage or death for some patients. Rapidly diagnosing stroke patients, who often wake up unaware of what has happened, is crucial as every passing minute without treatment can result in more extensive and permanent brain damage.
