Concussions are an elusive neurological disorder that are difficult to detect. Common tests, such as a neurological examination, EEG, CT or MRI of the brain often miss detecting a concussion. Sophisticated computerized testing specifically designed for detecting the effects of sports concussion is considered the most sensitive and reliable testing to diagnose concussion and determining when an athlete has recovered from the concussion and can return to play.
