Peer-Reviewed Publication Demonstrates BrainScope’s Ahead 300 Significantly Improves Prediction of TBI Beyond Standard Clinical Risk Factors Used Today
BETHESDA, MD. February 27, 2017 – BrainScope Company, Inc. today announced a publication demonstrating that prediction of a CT positive traumatic brain injury (TBI) is significantly improved when the electroencephalography (EEG) based biomarker from its Ahead 300 is used in addition to the most commonly considered predictive risk factor, Loss of Consciousness (LOC). The results of this study entitled “Increased prognostic accuracy of TBI when a brain electrical activity biomarker is added to Loss of Consciousness (LOC),” were published in the peer-reviewed American Journal of Emergency Medicine. Results of this study show an 83% improvement in the prediction of TBI using the Ahead 300 compared to that obtained using a history of LOC alone or LOC plus traumatic amnesia, the two most commonly used clinical diagnostic indicators for TBI.
