The brain is complex - trying to measure how a brain functions is very difficult, requiring guesswork and interpretation of data.
Alcohol, drugs, and pre-existing mental conditions can mimic the symptoms of a TBI when monitoring and interpreting brain function.
The ArcheOptix technologies measure and image structures to determine the severity of TBI - structures that should NOT be present in a normal, healthy brain.
These structural abnormalities are either present or they are not. When they are present, the NIRD™ series of devices will see them.
