Researchers have developed an inexpensive helmetlike device that scans the brain with radio-frequency signals to immediately reveal signs of brain damage. They claim that using this tool could be a quick, cheap way to tell whether a person has a potentially life-threatening brain injury that would require a hospital visit for detailed medical imaging. This would be especially useful in rural settings, where the nearest big hospital is often many kilometers away.
