Mild traumatic brain injury is not easy to image, but University of Vermont manages

to visualize effects using DTI.

 

In a longitudinal study of mTBI patients, researchers at the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVM Medical Center) concluded that fractional anisotropy changes between images taken less than 72 hours after injury and those taken after an additional week are more sensitive to the effects of mTBI than the values at either individual time point.

Quotes from article:

"In the USA, an estimated 1.7 million people are treated in emergency departments annually for head injury, and 75% of those have mTBI."

 

“The high stability of our system was such that in our control subjects, we saw very little variability between scan sessions, which suggests that we should be able to detect small variations in our metrics.”

 

“When we are looking at particularly thin structures, the higher resolution made possible by dStream is a substantial advantage.”

 

“The combination of dStream hardware, the 32-channel head coil and the strong Quasar Dual gradients is excellent for diffusion imaging.”
