Starting this summer, Banner Health Urgent Care in Greeley will be among the first in the nation to begin using BrainScope, a new device that assesses the potential severity of brain injuries and likelihood of concussions. It also can save patients from unneeded testing and trips to the emergency room.
“Introducing a technology like this to Colorado is an incredible opportunity for providers and patients alike,” Devin Minior, chief medical officer of Banner Urgent Care services, said in a news release. “Residents are highly active in the region and spend a lot of time participating in activities such as hiking, biking, rock climbing, etc. where there is a good chance of incurring a head injury. Using BrainScope, providers can more easily diagnose patients, get them the proper treatment and help them return to their normal lives sooner.”
