This presentation will focus on the use of the qEEG in detecting concussions. It will start exploring the use of the MTBI probability scores, then review severity index scores. The measurements will then be combined examining the issues when the scores differ from each other. This data will then be utilized to develop behavioral treatment programs. Power point slides will direct the presentation with discussion to follow.
Specific Learning objectives:
Examination of the 3 MTBI probability scores and how they differ from each other.
Examination of the severity index scores (2) and how they differ from each other.
Development of a chart showing the interactions between the measurements.
Data analysis of the scales (absolute power, coherence, phase lag & Alpha/Beta ratio) that contribute to the diagnosis of concussion.
