InfraScan, Inc. is a medical device company that focuses on handheld diagnostic imaging devices for head injuries and stroke. The Infrascanner™ is a hand-held device using near infrared (NIR) technologies for the detection of bleeding in the brain.
InfraScan Inc.’s Infrascanner is a handheld brain hematoma detector that caters to this unmet need. The Infrascanner? provides an affordable, highly accurate, clinically effective system to detect and monitor Brain Hematomas, in patients with head trauma in settings where effective monitoring and triaging is necessary, and in places where access to CT Scans is restricted. It detects hematoma based on the differential NIR light absorption of the bleeding versus the non-bleeding part of the brain, made possible by the unique light-absorbing property of the hemoglobin in the blood. Revenues from the sale of Infrascanner consist of the sale of the base detector unit and the disposable clean part of the sensor.
