Alta Bates Summit Medical Center to offer Head Injury Assessment of Injured Oakland Raiders
A relationship was announced by the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, NeuroLogica Corporation and
Oakland Raiders that will allow more immediate diagnosis of possible player head injury during games. A unique diagnostic procedure that will be done via NeuroLogica’s portable CereTom CT scanner is what it is all about. The scanner and medical center staff will be on site during all home games at MacAfee Coliseum in Oakland during the 2007 NFL season to offer immediate diagnostic scans. A CT scan is an advanced ‘x-ray’ image developed with computers to look inside any part of a patient’s body. Alta Bates Summit Medical Center is the first and only hospital in the country working cooperatively to provide rapid diagnosis of potential head injuries to NFL players using the CereTom technology. This unique plan gives Alta Bates Summit trial use of the portable CereTom in its Intensive Care Unit to provide immediate diagnosis to patients without the need to transport them to the medical center’s larger CT scanner. Alta Bates Summit will make use this portable scanner to decrease patient scanning time and increase accessibility to brain imaging as they are ranked in the top five percent of hospitals in the country as a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.
Doctors at Alta Bates Summit will make use of the CereTom scanner to diagnose possible injuries sustained by players, throughout Raider home games. The CereTom will transmit images from McAfee Coliseum directly to Alta Bates Summit’s digital radiology system for immediate physician-review for assessment and diagnosis. Through the generosity of NeuroLogica and the Raiders, Alta Bates Summit will have use of this unique diagnostic equipment when it is not in use at McAfee Coliseum on Raider home game days. “We’re extremely grateful that our patients will be able to benefit from this groundbreaking technology,” Warren Kirk, CEO at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center stated. “It is an excellent example of organizations working together to ensure quality health care in this community.”
Furthermore, the Raiders is the first NFL team to incorporate this technology. The portability and small size of CereTom allows it to be transported to the stadium for home games, where it will be located in the physicians’ exam room. The CereTom can also be used to scan and diagnose injuries occurring in the extremities including hands, elbows, knees and ankles within minutes from when they occur - which is more effective, efficient and comprehensive than traditional X-ray scans. In addition, the CereTom will also be accessible to visiting teams, should their players sustain injuries at MacAfee Coliseum in Oakland during a Raiders home game. “We are thrilled that the Oakland Raiders and Alta Bates Summit Medical Center are coming together to implement this life-changing piece of technology,” Eric M. Bailey, CEO of NeuroLogica Corporation said. “We applaud their cutting edge approach to the diagnosis and treatment of head trauma, and proactive approach towards the safety of the players.”
NeuroLogica lately received honor from medical staff ringside at the Oscar De La Hoya Vs Floyd Mayweather fight on May 5, as the company provided the CereTom to scan boxers post-fight. The company scanned eight boxers following fights throughout the weekend, and potentially saved one athlete’s life by identifying a brain bleed that otherwise may have gone undiagnosed had he not been scanned. The CereTom was also present at the Indianapolis 500, where it scanned drivers in the middle of the infield.
The Oakland Raiders players, staffs and management are delighted of this plan. The team is fortunate because the arrangement of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, NeuroLogica Corporation together with the team itself is indeed helpful to the Raiders as well as other players. This agreement will surely be a successful one for the companies and the organization and/or team.
