Using advanced analytics to develop a multimodal signature of concussion and post-concussive syndrome

Concussions are extremely common in deployment and in military and civilian activities (i.e. sports). Persisting symptoms that make up “post-concussive syndrome” (PCS) including headaches, balance difficulties, depression and anxiety can occur in 10-15% of cases. The diagnosis of concussion and PCS is currently based on a patient’s report of their symptoms and a physical exam. Research, including our own, has explored the value of specific tests including those that use eye movements, neuropsychological tests and MRI. Although useful in the research setting, we do not understand the value of these tests when used together and need to know what aspects of those tests are most valuable in developing future tools that distinguish those who are injured from those who are not.
