CereScan®’s functional brain imaging and analytical services are now available at the Helen Keller Hospital’s Imaging Center in Sheffield, Alabama. A Center-of-Excellence hospital, Helen Keller is strategically near major metropolitan areas, such as Nashville, Birmingham and Memphis and several military bases. The addition of the hospital grows CereScan’s network of affiliated functional brain imaging facilities to one of the largest in the nation. Patients in the region who are suffering from persistent symptoms related to brain-based disorders may now use the nation’s leading provider of statistically measured brain diagnostics to understand the neurological basis of their conditions for a more direct path to treatment and recovery.
Headquartered in Denver, CereScan uses its patented process to combine patient-clinical information, functional brain imaging and advanced processing software to help medical providers and their patients find a more complete and accurate diagnosis. Through its agreement, the Helen Keller Imaging Center has integrated CereScan’s patented process, using qSPECT (quantitative Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) imaging to assist referring physicians in the evaluation of complex neurological conditions, such as traumatic and toxic brain injuries.
“CereScan is thrilled to collaborate with Helen Keller Hospital, as we are confident so many will benefit from our functional brain imaging services, from the patient to the provider,” said John Kelley, CEO and Chairman of CereScan. “Accurately identifying complex brain disorders and assisting physicians in the diagnosis remains a top priority.”
Many brain-based conditions have overlapping symptoms that can be clinically confusing and difficult to treat. As an example, patients with a traumatic brain injury often experience personality changes, poor concentration and fatigue, which can also be common symptoms for bipolar disorder and dementia. CereScan is able to clarify non-specific symptoms to enhance the physician’s ability to accurately diagnose and have better outcomes.
CereScan is the nation’s leader in providing statistically measured brain diagnostics based on a new generation of imaging software, PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography), qEEG (quantitative electroencephalography) brain mapping and qSPECT neuroimaging technologies. Referring and treating medical experts can rely on CereScan to offer differentiated diagnoses on a wide array of brain-based disorders including post-traumatic stress disorder, concussions, bipolar disorder and depression.
CereScan combines state-of-the-art qSPECT, qEEG and PET/CT brain imaging technologies with a patient centered model of care to provide the highest level of neurodiagnostics anywhere. Using quantitative functional brain imaging, advanced imaging software, and an extensive library of clinical data, the CereScan medical team provides physicians with unmatched objective diagnostic information. CereScan helps patients and their physicians better understand the neurological basis of their conditions. In a variety of legal settings, CereScan provides unbiased evidence to attorneys and their clients regarding traumatic and toxic brain injuries. For researchers, CereScan provides independent pre- and post-treatment measures of organic changes in the brain along with measures of symptoms related to the brain disorder of interest.
