Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) offers a unique insight into brain cellular metabolism following traumatic brain injury (TBI). The aim of the present study was to assess change in neurometabolite markers of brain injury during the recovery period following TBI. We studied 19 TBI patients at 1.5, 3, and 6 months postinjury and 28 controls. We used 1H-MRS to quantify N-acetylaspartate (NAA), creatine (Cre), choline (Cho), and myoinositol (mIns) in occipitoparietal gray matter (GM… CONTINUE READING
