The D2™ "Changing the Face of Concussion Diagnoses"
KDVR's Joana Canals joined Dr. Jeff McWhorter of NeuraPerformance Brain Center in a mobile testing unit to take a test and discuss how he uses the Dynavision D2™.
Comparing post-injury test results to baseline tests, which are a snapshot of a healthy brain before a head injury occurs, assists the team at NeuraPerformance in picking up on subtle cognitive changes. As effects of the injury are properly identified, more informed decisions regarding the best course of action for concussion recovery can be made.
"Baseline testing is also an important step in raising concussion awareness for athletes, parents, and coaches. The test is used to assess an athlete’s balance and brain function, including learning and memory skills, ability to concentrate, reaction time, and problem solving skills. It includes a scan for concussion symptoms as well as cognitive assessments" (Neuraperformance.com.)
