Ultrasonic waves for real time measuring of blood viscoelasticity

Bettucci Andrea

The purpose this project is the development of a small, novel, reliable, rugged and easy to use point-of-care (POC) sonodevice based on ultrasonic waves for real time measuring of blood viscoelasticity. At sound difference with common laboratory tests, the device will measure in real time blood viscoelasticity. The use of POC diagnostics may compensate for the methodological limitations of conventional coagulation testing as standard lab tests of blood coagulation yield only partial diagnostic information, and important coagulation defects remain undetected.
