The Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT3) is a standard tool that is widely used for the evaluation of concussion in athletes. The document was issued with the Consensus Statement released after the 4th International Conference on Concussion in Sport held in Zurich in November 2012. It takes 15-20 minutes to complete and computes a composite score. The SCAT3 has been validated in athletes who are over 13 years of age. For those under 13, there is a Child SCAT3.
