A biochemical test for traumatic brain injury diagnosis
Doctors in an emergency room reach diagnosis of a suspected traumatic brain injury (TBI) using a combination of CT and MRI scans as well as a neurological evaluation. The EU-funded Medicortex project has developed an alternative TBI diagnostic method which is fast and easy to use and can be performed at the point of care, offering immediate results. The test is based on TBI-specific biomarkers that can be detected in saliva and urine samples, and it has great potential to improve the clinical outcome of millions of people with TBI worldwide.
