Delivering patient-centric care in assessing Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) through novel Brain Biomarkers

Sponsored by: Abbott

Event Date & Time
Date: May 9, 2023
Time: 6:00 AM (PDT), 9:00 AM (EDT), 3:00 PM (CEST)
Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, is the greatest contributor to death and disability globally among trauma related injuries [1]. Due to the subjectivity of current neurocognitive assessments, patients often require unnecessary CT scans and lengthy emergency room visits. An accurate test is required to confidently aid in ruling out intracranial lesion, improve patient ED throughput and evaluation, and better utilize imaging resources [2]. In this webinar:
  • Dr. Musaelyan will introduce the importance of Brain Biomarkers and how they will help address unmet needs in the objective evaluation and assessment of patients suspected of traumatic brain injuries
  • Dr. Pavletić, as the head of an Emergency Department, will share a real-life example of how the introduction of novel neurological biomarkers in the patient care pathway helps provide an objective rule out tool and helps reduce unnecessary CT scans thereby freeing resources to care for more patients
