  • The role of neuroimaging in the diagnosis and management of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) is evolving. In general, the structural imaging techniques play a role in acute diagnosis and management, while the functional imaging techniques show promise for clarification of pathophysiology, symptom genesis, and mechanisms of recovery. A wide array of neuropathological processes are involved in mild TBI including changes in bone (e.g., a skull fracture), tissue density and water content (edema… CONTINUE READING
