Non-Contact Ultrasonic MEMS Detector for Brain Hemorrhage

Project Coordinator: Assoc. Prof. Barış Bayram (ULTRAMEMS)

Project Duration: 36 Months

Project Start Date: 2017

Funded Personnel: One MS/PhD and two undergraduate students will be appointed in the research activities regarding the project.

Detection of brain hemorrhage within the first 1.5 hours is critical for a patient to avoid permanent brain damage. However due to their high complexity, high cost devices like MRI and CT can hardly be available in this time frame. This project proposes a method for detection of blood within the brain.
