Cerebral Aneurysm

In the U.S., over 30,000 brain aneurysms rupture annually, with 50% being fatal and 25% causing serious health issues.

Timely follow-up and intervention are crucial in reducing these dire outcomes.

Emily’s Wake-Up Call

42-year-old Emily experienced sudden, severe headaches. An MRI, initially read for migraines, revealed a 3mm unruptured cerebral aneurysm. Our software flagged this critical finding, leading to prompt neurosurgical consultation. She underwent successful coiling without complications.

Patient and Provider Value

When we inform patients about an incidental cerebral aneurysm, their initial reaction often involves shock and fear. These conversations, however, offer a pivotal opportunity to educate and empower patients, transforming anxiety into informed action.

Our approach not only reinforces the value of proactive health monitoring but also fosters a deeper trust between patients and their healthcare providers. For clinicians, this system enhances the ability to capture and act on critical neurological findings, improving patient care and outcomes. The appreciation and relief expressed by patients and families underscore the profound impact of early detection and intervention, bolstering our commitment to excellence in patient care.
