OBJECTIVE Although most mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) patients suffer any of several post-concussion symptoms suggestive of thalamic involvement, they rarely present with any MRI-visible pathology. The aim here, therefore, is to characterize their thalamic metabolite levels with proton MR spectroscopy (1H-MRS) compared with healthy controls. METHODS T1-weighted MRI and multi-voxel 1H-MRS were acquired at 3 Tesla from 20 mTBI (Glasgow Coma Scale score of 15-13) patients, 19-59 years old… CONTINUE READING
