What We Offer
MRI Scanning Session
Once an official TBIFinder Screening Form has been completed and it is identified that the individual can proceed, a 1 hour MRI scanning session will be scheduled. Results are examined by a third-party radiologist who ensures that no pre-existing conditions exist. MRI data is further analyzed using a novel processing algorithm and results are further compiled into a final report.
Along with an MRI scanning session, patients are scheduled for an in. person appointment with a third-party rehabilitation physician. First, relevant health information and current symptoms will be noted. Second. current clinical-standard concussion testing will be performed. A final report will be drafted outlining similar content as seen in an official Medical Legal report.
The TBIFinder score relates structural and functional MRI findings with a patient's clinical symptoms. Each brain region evaluated is associated with specific clinical symptoms (i.e. headache, nausea, and vomiting) and each brain region is classified on a 0-6 severity scale (comparable to the PCSS standard). Clinicians can then use the TBIFinder score to provide targeted treatments and make better data driven decisions.
Fully Personalized Assessment Report
Using a Big Data approach with existing healthy control data, TBIFinder has created and established a healthy baseline for each age and sex within the 18-70 year old range. By comparing brain injury patients to this healthy baseline, TBIFinder eliminates the need for any type of pre-injury MRI on a patient, is able to determine the severity of the injury (i.e. how far from baseline), and facilitates a fully personalized assessment.
What About Other Imaging? We Go Beyond.
Although Computed Tomography (CT) and MRI sequences such as Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI) are useful for brain injury assessment, they only present a benefit in more severe cases of TBI. Unfortunately, mild cases are assessed as normal/healthy by current CT and SWI standards, leaving patients feeling confused and hopeless.
That's why TBIFinder goes beyond these traditional methods in order to properly assess mild BI cases and provide useful and definitive information for all patients suffering from a brain injury.
