|NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING OF TBI: ACCIDENT & BRAIN INJURY
Did you hit your head in the accident?
Did you feel foggy, dazed or confused right after the impact?
Do you remember the impact?
Can you fully recall the events leading up to and following your accident?
Have you been experiencing difficulties with memory, attention, or mood following
Any thinking or processing problems following the accident?
Do you experience irritability, anxiety, depression, or anger since your accident?
Have you been told that you are “not the same person” since the accident?
Any difficulty interacting with family members and others due to accident related TBI?
Any trouble performing your job responsibilities as a result of difficulties with thinking or
mood following your accident?
Did you develop difficulties in performing household duties as result of
your accident related problems with thinking or mood?
Is it possible to determine if you have sustained a closed head injury, TBI, or a concussion?
HOW CAN YOU ASSESS, DIAGNOSE, DOCUMENT AND RECOVER?
At Dr. Danov Neuropsychologist P.C., we examine and treat adults and children who have
developed cognitive problems secondary to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to:
slip and fall accident
physical attack and blow to your head
auto collision or motor-vehicle accident (MVA)
construction accident with injuring your brain in a fall or dropping a heavy object on your
any work accident involving a brain injury
birth trauma with resultant brain injury (traumatic brain injury, TBI, or anoxic brain injury)
We also evaluate individuals who've sustained a stroke, neuro-toxic poisoning, or any other brain
injury as a result of an accident or medical malpractice and negligence.
Some individuals may experience confusion, disorientation, slurred speech, memory loss and
other cognitive changes after a stroke, brain injury and other trauma. Some patients may also
experience behavioral and
Neuropsychological testing provides an objective evidence of brain injury (TBI)
and post-stroke cognitive impairment and subsequent cognitive and emotional
problems, if any developed after a cerebral injury. Neuropsychological testing
offers objective test results, as opposed to your subjective complaints. These
objective test results are essential in accurate assessment of your post- accident cognitive injury
and TBI. Then by comparing the pattern of these results with your pre- injury abilities, and
correlating these results with the nature of the trauma, neuropsychologist can establish and
confirm or rule out a diagnosis of TBI.
Neuropsychological testing is especially helpful when radiological findings (i.e., MRI, CT scans)
are negative or inconclusive. Follow up neuropsychological testing allows you to track the
effectiveness of a treatment, as well as to document permanency of cognitive problems
secondary to a TBI.
|Our evaluations and treatment are private, discrete and thorough, and
provide you with the needed personal comfort, privacy and
confidentiality you deserve during these trying times.
