Brain Safe Louisiana provides the following:
An MRI assessment of brain health collected as part of annual physical exam.
If an injury occurs during routine sports play, the participant in the Brain Safe program received up to three additional MRI scans to assess for differences between the baseline MRI and the injury MRI. A detailed within-subject comparison of baseline scan with follow-up scan after a concussion to aid in return-to-play, work or classroom decisions.
A supplement to the standard medical procedures for concussion assessment: it does not alter or replace the standard medical procedures.
A non-invasive concussion protocol for student athletes using a variety of MRI tools and unique computer algorithms to detect changes in the brain that may not be identified by standard testing.
Brain Safe also allows for an optional research component depending on patient approval.
