We are using CYRIL to monitor babies who have suffered from a lack of oxygen during birth, assessing whether it can diagnose the level of brain injury in the first crucial days of life, while the baby is still undergoing intensive care.
Importantly, the technique can be used at the cotside in the intensive care unit, without having to move the baby for an MRI scan. It’s also cheap, safe and non-invasive, and can be used for continuous monitoring.
We hope that one day doctors will be able to use CYRIL to help diagnose and treat these babies more effectively, bringing life-saving and life-changing benefits to them and their families.
