Abstract : pLack of Information about how bone mineralization progress over time in the cranial vault of newborns makes it difficult to quantitatively assess the recovery after the surgical intervention. Available technologies are considerably risky to reduce this gap and new solutions are nowadays being researched. Sensors operating at low microwave frequencies could be devised to read some changes in the composition of the superficial layers of the head of which skull are a substantial part. These changes could be associated to different stages of bone mineralization. This hypothetical solution is being studied in a pilot clinical campaign executed in the frame of the Indo-Swedish Vinnova - DST funded BDAS project ( In this work we present a part of the current progress of this project. A preliminary statistical data analysis is performed and the observations and conclusions made from it will direct the future research with a special focus on the earlier stages of bone mineralization (up to 1 month after surgery). © Institution of Engineering and Technology.All Rights Reserved./p
