NEBA is the first of a new kind of medical device cleared by the FDA that uses brainwaves (EEG) to help clinicians more accurately diagnose ADHD in children and adolescents (ages 6 – 17.99 years).
The FDA created an entirely new category of medical device to regulate NEBA. These devices are called Neuropsychiatric Interpretive EEG-based Assessment Aids or NIEAs for short.
NEBA uses brainwaves (EEG) along with a clinician’s initial diagnostic impression to improve the accuracy of the ADHD diagnostic process. It measures the electrical activity in the front part of the brain to derive a biomarker. This testing then combines this information with the clinician’s diagnostic impression. Using this data and a patented method, NEBA categorizes children with ADHD symptoms into three groups:
- ADHD – confirmatory support
- Focus on ADHD- Support for further testing
- Focus on other conditions- Support for further testing
An FDA validation study (available from FDA’s website) showed that NEBA’s categorization can help clinicians reduce overdiagnosis of ADHD to as low as 3%.
ADHD- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – Testing in Lees Summit
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most misdiagnosed disorders in children. This is due, in part, to the inadequate systems of the medical community to get a child properly diagnosed. Many pediatricians rely on a checklist, or the “prescribe and see” method of diagnosing.
These methods are inappropriate for proper diagnosis and often dangerous.
Wouldn’t you want to know for sure whether or not your child has ADHD? The truth is there is no “one test” for ADHD. Traditionally, clinician’s use a battery of tests and an interview. However, we now have a tool that dramatically increases our ability to properly diagnose ADHD in children and adolescents between the ages of 6-17…
