Sports concussions are an elusive neurological disorder that are difficult to detect. Common tests, such as a neurological examination, EEG, CT, or MRI of the brain, often miss detecting a concussion. Sophisticated computerized testing specifically designed for detecting the effects of sports concussion is considered the most sensitive and reliable testing to diagnose concussion and determining when an athlete has recovered from the concussion and can return to play.
The HFM Sports Concussion Clinic utilizes proven, state-of-the-art computer technology called ImPACT to make a more precise diagnosis. This software program was developed by specialists at the University of Pittsburgh and Henry Ford Health System to detect the presence of sports concussions.
