Statement from BrainScope

Tua Tagovailoa’s Injury and Why We Need a More Objective Assessment of Head Injuries Now

BETHESDA, MD (October 3, 2022) – The events of the past week have led to significant concern and conversation about Tua Tagovailoa’s health and recovery and have highlighted the need for changes to the NFL’s concussion protocols. When a player hits his head and is visibly shaken and potentially even collapses, this is a good indication that there is a disruption to brain function. However, misinterpretation of subjective evaluations and self-reporting of symptoms can and do lead to inaccurate conclusions.

Incorporating objective evidence into the evaluation of head injury could greatly improve clinical diagnosis, return to play decision-making and ultimately, outcomes. BrainScope’s handheld device provides FDA cleared indications for both the likelihood of concussion and brain bleed at the same time, without radiation and in minutes. The highly validated assessment results provide physicians with objective information that aids in making an informed and accurate diagnosis.

With millions of head injuries in the U.S. each year, it is time to integrate objective biomarkers of injury into clinical diagnosis.

“Utilizing BrainScope gives me more actionable clinical data to assess concussion than is available to emergency physicians in the ED today."

Marsh Cuttino, MD FAAEM FACEP,  Emergency Physician, Richmond VA

"When BrainScope is used independently or in conjunction with a standard head rule, fewer patients are scanned—resulting in less radiation exposure, less time in the ED, improved patient experience."

David Levine, MD, FACEP, Emergency Physician, Brunswick OH

BrainScope gives our patients peace of mind—with BrainScope, we have saved 43% of patients from unnecessary radiation due to CT scans.
