Hurt Your Head?
What Should You Do?

 1. Immediately visit you physician or your nearest Emergency Room or Urgent Care Facility.

2. Completing the linked standardized questionnaire may help your doctor’s examination.


What Is BrainScope?

The BrainScope One system provides objective data that helps clinicians answer two key questions in presenting head injured patients between the ages of 18 and 85 years old:

Is it likely that there is a structural brain injury or “brain bleed” that would be visible on a CT scan?

Is there evidence of functional brain impairment that could indicate a concussion?


How does BrainScope work?  

  • A unique, FDA-cleared medical device named BrainScope One uses the EEG signal to determine whether the patient likely has a brain bleed and/or a concussion.

  • Electrical signals course through the brain and when someone has a brain injury these electrical signals change and are different from those that would be present in an uninjured brain.

  • BrainScope One has been developed by comparing a head injured patient’s brain electrical activity to a large database of patients with and without brain injury to determine the potential presence of a structural injury (or “brain bleed”) and their level of brain function impairment.

Potential Patient Benefits  

  • BrainScope One can help your doctor to determine if a CT Scan, or special X-ray test, is necessary to detect brain bleeding.

    • A single CT scan exposes patients to far more radiation than a standard X-ray

  • Lower Cost

    • BrainScope is significantly less expensive for the patient

  • Shorter Wait Times

    • In the emergency room, long wait times before being seen, and between admission, examination, assessments and discharge are common. The BrainScope assessment can be done in minutes.

BrainScope One Background

  • The BrainScope System represents over 10 years of research, funded in part by Department of Defense Contracts.

  • BrainScope has obtained 4 FDA Clearances.

  • 23 Clinical Research Studies have been published based on data using BrainScope technology.
