While traditional approaches to traumatic brain injury detection can be inconclusive, including MRI and CT scans, another technology is gaining notoriety with legal and medical professionals.
Referred by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a “silent epidemic,” traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects millions every year, but this invisible injury is often difficult to diagnose. Traditional imaging results are generally inconclusive for people with concussions – or mild TBI – as the damage associated with the injury often impacts cellular function and MRI and CT scans only analyze the structure of the brain.
However, an advance technology utilized by CereLaw called qSPECT (quantitative Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) is aiding attorneys and medical providers. The qSPECT process establishes the existence of mild- to moderate-TBI and its effects through SPECT imaging, advanced imaging software, detailed medical history and clinical assessments. SPECT imaging measures and analyzes blood flow levels throughout the brain to pinpoint the exact area impacted by the injury.
Lead by Brett Green, Esq. the CereLaw team is increasing awareness of TBI detection technologies available to attorneys through industry conferences such as the 2016 BIACAL Med-Legal Conference on Nov. 18 – 19 in Napa, California, and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association’s Annual Meeting on Dec. 8 – 9 in Dallas, Texas.
“Industry conferences are a great way for us to increase education around some of the advanced diagnostic tools for brain injuries that can help correlate or distinguish brain-based disorders,” said Brett Green, vice president of CereLaw. “We also had the opportunity to meet with experts from various market segments and share best practices. The experiences and key learnings were invaluable.”
