Quick scan for brain injury

The idea is to create a portable, handheld device able to screen for brain hematoma quickly, saving valuable diagnosis time.
While the brain's absorption of light should be symmetrical, areas of the brain with extra blood alter the amount of light absorbed and reflected. The scanner will use near UV light to detect blood collections in the brain, and will be used to test different areas of the brain.
The scanner is meant to be used as a quick screen, aiding in the decision as to whether or not to proceed with a CT scan.
