Abstract/Summary In this paper, we investigate the possibility of using array of wideband antennas to differentiate between the two kinds of brain stroke: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Wideband antennas arranged as a circular array surrounding a human head and immersed in a coupling medium are used to monitor a suspected stroke area. The proposed method is based on comparing the reflection coefficients of any pair of antennas located symmetrically around the head. The simulated results indicate a promising method of using the variation in the reflection coefficient of the antennas to give a quick differentiation between different head strokes, which is a must for any possibility of a patient survival.
