BrainScope Named “Best New Diagnostic Technology Solution” in 2022 MedTech Breakthrough Awards Program
Annual awards program recognizes outstanding medical and healthcare technology products and companies
BETHESDA, Maryland, May 11, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Innovator of Brain Assessment Devices BrainScopeannounced today that it has been selected as “Best New Diagnostic Technology Solution” in the sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program hosted by Breakthrough MedTechan independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the best companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology markets.
BrainScope is an FDA-cleared Class 2 wearable medical device that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology to identify objective biomarkers of structural and functional brain damage in patients with suspected brain damage. mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
BrainScope enables clinicians to triage mTCBs at the point of care without radiation and with a demonstrated 30% to 60% reduction in unnecessary computed tomography (CT) of the head. BrainScope is suitable for patients presenting to emergency departments, urgent care centers, and concussion clinics, as well as patients who play sports or are in the military.

“What an honor it is to receive this award from MedTech Breakthrough. This validates the work of our entire team as we strive to improve brain health by providing objective diagnostic information that enables better patient care,” said Dr. Diku Mandavia, Chief Medical Officer. at BrainScope. “BrainScope helps answer key questions for clinicians and patients – whether the patient has suffered a brain bleed or a concussion, and whether they are ready to return to normal activities. The technological change brought about by BrainScope has immediate benefits for the patient and the emergency department – the timing of this 21st century approach couldn’t be better.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize innovation, hard work and success in a range of medical and health technology categories, including telehealth, clinical delivery, patient engagement, electronic health records (EHR), virtual care, medical care. Devices, medical data and many more. This year’s program attracted over 3,900 nominations from over 15 different countries around the world.
“Traumatic brain injury is at near epidemic levels in the United States with five million head-injured patients receiving care in emergency departments each year and while CT scans remain the standard of care, these scans do not can detect the presence or absence of a brain bleed and not detect a concussion,” said James Johnson, CEO of MedTech Breakthrough. “BrainScope is the only system that aids in the comprehensive assessment of brain injury minor injuries, including brain bleeds and concussions. It is truly point-of-care and takes only minutes from patient preparation to results – a real step forward that we are delighted with. award as part of our sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program.”
BrainScope’s FDA cleared technology is exceptionally validated, published and patented, through 29 clinical studies, over 14,000 subject evaluations, 8 FDA and 2 Health Canada clearances, MDSAP and ISO13485 certifications, 31 publications reviewed peer review and 90 global patents granted.
BrainScope’s FDA-cleared EEG algorithms help clinicians rule out brain bleeds, assess concussion and concussion severity, and make accurate diagnosis and referral across the continuum of care.
BrainScope is a medical neurotechnology company that improves brain health by providing objective diagnostic information that enables better patient care. BrainScope is leading the way in rapid and objective assessment of brain-related conditions, starting with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), using multiple built-in assessment capabilities, artificial intelligence (AI), and scanning. The company’s technology supports the American College of Emergency Physicians’ (ACEP) Choose Wisely® campaign to avoid CT scans of the head in emergency department patients with minor head trauma. BrainScope’s innovative EEG-based and AI-derived algorithms enable physicians to quickly perform accurate assessments of traumatic brain injury, addressing the full spectrum of traumatic brain injury, from structural damage (cerebral hemorrhage) to functional injury (concussion), providing for the first time a complete image of the injury, in less time and without radiation.
