FDA announces approval for first blood test to detect concussions

The FDA has approved a blood test that can detect concussion.  Up until now, there was no objective test to determine if someone suffered a concussion. A CT only determines if someone has had a moderate to severe brain injury.  The definition of concussion is that there is a jolt or hit to the head, but nothing shows up on a CT, yet a person is experiencing neurological symptoms.  Also, CTs are expensive and emit 200x the radiation of a chest X-ray.  Now with this test, someone can be tested within 10-15 min. of the incident or up to 12 hours after.  It is expected that someday there will be a version of this assessment tool that can be administered on the sidelines or in the field of combat.

I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty
worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever
before.

It's beautiful value enough for me. Personally, if all
web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net can be much more helpful
than ever before.
