We evaluated cerebral blood flow (CBF) in chronic pediatric mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) using arterial spin labeling (ASL) magnetic resonance imaging perfusion. mTBI patients showed lower CBF than controls in bilateral frontotemporal regions, with no between-group cognitive differences. Findings suggest ASL may be useful to assess functional(More)
CONTEXT Decreased performance in dynamic balance has previously been associated with a history of ulnar collateral ligament injury in baseball players. Previous research on dynamic balance in soccer players has shown that test performance depends on competition level. However, dynamic balance has yet to be examined in baseball players. OBJECTIVE To(More)
PURPOSE The neural substrate of post-concussive symptoms following the initial injury period after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) in pediatric populations remains poorly elucidated. This study examined neuropsychological, behavioral, and brain functioning in adolescents post-mTBI to assess whether persistent differences were detectable up to a year(More)
Dynamic balance is an integral component in screening lower extremity injury risk. Previous research has identified the need to create sport and competition level specific dynamic balance injury cut points. The purpose of this study was to determine if dynamic balance differences exist, utilizing the Lower Quarter Y-Balance Test (YBT-LQ), across varying(More)
