Head injury assessments on the BrainScope device

• BrainScope algorithms
— Structural Injury Classifier
— Concussion Index
— Brain Function Index
• MACE2 (VOMs, SAC, mBESS)
• SCAT5
Structural injury assessment

Quickly rule out the likelihood of a brain bleed within 20 minutes, and determine the need for rapid evacuation for further treatment.

BrainScope's Structural Injury Classifier (SIC) algorithm can assess the likelihood of a brain bleed to even the smallest detectable amount of blood (≥1mL) with 99% sensitivity and a 98% negative predictive value (NPV).

Concussion management

BrainScope aids in the evaluation and management of concussion enabling earlier treatment and lessening time to recovery.

The Concussion Index (CI) assessment incorporates rapidly acquired EEG data, cognitive performance testing, and specific clinical signs/symptoms into a multimodal algorithm to assess concussion, with the largest contribution from EEG features only. CI aids in objective clinical diagnosis and in determination of readiness to return to activity.

The Brain Function Index (BFI) algorithm includes only EEG features, especially those that measure changes in “connectivity” between brain regions, reflecting the physiological changes seen in concussion. BFI scales with severity.  

To supplement the EEG-based and cognitive performance assessments, BrainScope has digitized several standard clinical assessments commonly used by clinicians to evaluate head-injured patients, including MACE 2.
