BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE More than 85% of brain traumas are classified as "mild"; MR imaging findings are minimal if any and do not correspond to clinical symptoms. Our goal, therefore, was to quantify the global decline of the neuronal marker N-acetylaspartate (NAA), as well as gray (GM) and white matter (WM) atrophy after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty patients (11 male, 9 female; age range, 19-57 years; median, 35 years) with mTBI (Glasgow Coma Scale score… CONTINUE READING
