Microwaves and Electrical bio-impedance for diagnosing thoracic injuries: Test on a porcine pneumothorax and haemothorax model. In this pilot-study the objective was to determine if microwaves and electrical bio-impedance could have the potential to detectthoracic injuries commonly occurring in road traffic crashes. The final goal is to be able to deploy the methods on-scene in order to decide on best treatment procedures and processes. The study was carried out using a porcine pneumothorax and haemothorax model.

A second study with the objective to determine if microwaves and electrical bio-impedance could have the potential to detect thoracic injuries commonly occurring in road traffic crashes. The final goal is to be able to deploy the methods on-scene in order to decide on best treatment procedures and processes. The study was carried out using a porcine torso model.
