Globally, 266 million people suffer from degenerative spine disease and low back pain. Of all the disease states, back and neck pain account for the highest healthcare spending in the US. Aclarion’s Nociscan solution is the first evidence-supported SaaS platform to noninvasively help physicians distinguish between painful and nonpainful discs in the lumbar spine. Nociscan objectively quantifies chemical biomarkers demonstrated to be associated with disc pain. Biomarker data is entered into proprietary algorithms to highlight if a disc may be a source of pain. When used with other diagnostic tools, Nociscan provides critical insights into the location of a patient’s low back pain, giving physicians clarity to optimize treatment strategies.
Dr. Berven, Chief of Spine Service, Orthopaedic Surgery at University of California at San Francisco and physician advisor to Aclarion, noted, "Pain of spinal origin is a priority for our healthcare economy. Spinal disorders are prevalent and have a significant impact on health-related quality of life. Accurate diagnosis and precise localization of pain sources are important for guiding appropriate care for spinal disorders. I am most confident that the Aclarion technology will be valuable in improving diagnostic accuracy for patients with symptomatic low back pain, and I’m pleased to present this information at SPINEWEEK."
“We are pleased to support the global thought leadership fostered by SPINEWEEK and we are honored to have luminaries such as Dr. Lotz and Dr. Berven presenting important Aclarion evidence to this global audience. Aclarion is committed to leading with clinical and economic evidence, and we look forward to participating in SPINEWEEK this year,” said Brent Ness, CEO, Aclarion.
