Traumatic brain injury is among the most frequent pediatric neurologic disorders in the United States, affecting multiple aspects of neuropsychologic functioning. This study assessed the efficacy of susceptibility weighted imaging as a predictor of long-term neuropsychologic functioning after pediatric brain injury compared with magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging. Susceptibility weighted imaging is a relatively new method that is considered superior to traditional magnetic resonance… CONTINUE READING

Improved detection of the extent of diffuse axonal injury following a brain injury will allow for a better understanding of its association with long - term outcome , which in turn can improve prognostic efficacy for effective treatment planning .
