What is a brain check evaluation?

A brain check evaluation can help identify warning signs of dementia and other conditions that cause cognitive dysfunction before symptoms affect your life.

McLean Cares offers the eVox brain health system to scan your brain and record its activity without an invasive procedure. The team uses the Federal Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared system to gain insight into your brain health by measuring biomarkers that play a role in your cognitive function.

The goal of a brain check evaluation is to look for problems in the earliest stages when treatment is typically most effective. Too often, cognitive conditions like dementia go undetected or receive a misdiagnosis and ultimately become more difficult to treat.

By identifying cognitive issues early, you can start treatment without delays and protect your long-term brain health.

When should I schedule a brain check evaluation?

You should schedule a brain check evaluation at McLean Cares if you’re experiencing symptoms of brain dysfunction, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Forgetfulness
  • Memory loss
  • Sleep issues
  • Concentration difficulties
  • Depressed mood

You may also need an eVox brain scan if you’re under stress or experience a head injury during an unexpected event like an auto accident, fall, or sports injury.

People over 65 may benefit from annual brain check evaluations to screen for warning signs of cognitive decline that can occur with age.

What happens during a brain check evaluation?

The eVox brain scan technology uses electroencephalography (EEG) to record the electrical activity in your brain. Electrodes that attach to your scalp collect information about your brain function and transmit the information to the eVox system.

The system gives your provider the opportunity to evaluate biomarkers in your brain to determine the cause of existing cognitive impairments. The same biomarkers can also provide insight into potential cognitive issues like dementia that can develop in your brain later.

It takes less than an hour to complete an in-office brain scan. The eVox technology provides results that are easy to interpret, so the team can discuss them with you right away. If the brain check evaluation reveals existing cognitive issues, they can also go over options for treatment during your visit.

After a brain check evaluation, you can resume your usual activities immediately. There’s no need to schedule downtime after your appointment.
