Cerebo is a handy, non-invasive, fully computerized system for detecting intracranial hemorrhage within 2 minutes. Since it is convenient, it can be easily transported and used on site. It is completely computerized, so no special skills are required. It is non-invasive, based on NIR spectroscopy, so it can be used multiple times without causing any damage to the patient.
