Abstract [en]

The present invention comprises method and apparatus for detecting injury resulting in pathological processes affecting tissue within a portion of the body in a mammal, particularly a human brain. Said method comprises the steps of applying a first and a second pair of electrodes around the periphery of the portion, generating an alternating current at a known current level and applying said current between the first pair of electrodes, detecting and measuring the alternating voltage developed between the second pair of electrodes, and calculating the impedance of said portion. Further, the alternating current is applied between the first pair of electrodes in a series of increasing frequencies ranging within a known spectrum, and the resistance and the reactance for each frequency are detected and plotted against said frequency. The electrical impedance of said portion is calculated for each frequency and plotted into an impedance plot. Said resistance-reactance-and impedance-plots are finally analyzed, and any notable changes compared to normal spectrum profiles and plots are detected and evaluated.
