BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Current imaging does not permit quantification of neural injury after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and therefore limits both the development of new treatments and the appropriate counseling of patients concerning prognosis. We evaluated the utility of magnetization transfer ratio (MTR) and proton MR spectroscopy in identifying patients with neuronal injury after TBI. METHODS Thirty patients with TBI (21-77 years old; mean age, 42 years; admission Glasgow Coma Scale (GOS… CONTINUE READING
