Head injuries are
nothing to take lightly.

Head injuries are nothing to take lightly. That’s why WellNow Urgent Care is here to help make it all better with BrainScope One® – an FDA-cleared head injury assessment device that screens and detects the full spectrum of head injury.

Patients over the age of 18 that have received a mild head injury within the last three days can use the device. After an assessment with a WellNow Urgent Care clinician, a disposable BrainScope One headset is placed on the patient’s head. Lasting 20 minutes or less on average, an initial EEG is performed followed by two neurocognitive function tests using a portable screen. All activity is monitored and analyzed by a clinician to determine the answers to two critical questions:

  • Is it like that there is a structural brain injury that would be visible on a CT scan?
  • Is there evidence of functional abnormality that would indicate a concussion?

From these answers, we will determine what type of treatment is needed, if further tests are required or if the patient should be referred to a specialist.

Unlike CT scans, which detect brain bleeds, a BrainScope One assessment generates objective data that helps clinicians determine the need for a CT scan and the presence of a concussion. By monitoring brain electrical activity and neurocognitive function, BrainScope One produces no ionizing radiation, which reduces the risk of being exposed to unnecessary radiation that can come from a CT scan.

From the stray flyball to the accidental tumble, our caring staff can help take the guesswork out of your head injury. Walk in to our Greece or Liverpool location for a BrainScope One assessment today.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening injury, call 911 immediately or visit your nearest ER.
