Concussion diagnosis and management
UPMC offers a unique approach to concussion rehabilitation. Our specialists focus on active treatment and re-examination.
UPMC concussion specialists know that no two concussion injuries are alike and use advanced assessment tools — such as ImPACT® concussion testing — to provide a quantitative approach to concussion care.
Co-developed by concussion experts who now lead the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Programme in the U.S., ImPACT is a state-of-the-art, software-based neurocognitive assessment tool that assesses a patient's neural process and mental function in detail. It also provides doctors with guidance to help diagnose a concussion and decide the best possible treatment plan.
A baseline test prior to injury is highly encouraged.
