Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common cause of death and disability in young people. The functional outcome in patients with TBI cannot be explained by focal pathology alone, and diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is considered a major contributor to the neurocognitive deficits experienced by this group. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) offers additional information as to the extent of damage not visualized with standard magnetic… CONTINUE READING
