BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been shown to be particularly effective in detecting early (0 to 4 hours) pathophysiological changes in localized brain regions after cerebral ischemia. The present study sought to establish whether diffusion-weighted MRI would be similarly effective in predicting outcome after traumatic brain injury. METHODS Diffusion-weighted MRI images and T2-weighted MRI images were obtained over 4 hours after either moderate… CONTINUE READING

We conclude that traumatic brain injury results in an increased water diffusion distance with the directionality indicative of bulk flow of extracellular fluid toward the lateral ventricles ( vasogenic edema ) .
