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.”
