Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) - DTI/MRI
Due to the complexities of brain injuries, it can often be challenging to accurately diagnose them with traditional imaging techniques such as an MRI. In many instances, the results of a conventional MRI or CT scan will show no signs of a brain injury even a traumatic brain injury has in fact occurred. Those who suffer concussions and post-concussion syndrome may never have positive findings on brain MRIs and CT scans. These challenges in diagnosing brain injuries make treating the condition even more complicated.
Fortunately, there is a new cutting edge brain injury diagnostic technique called diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), which can significantly improve a doctor's ability to diagnose traumatic brain injury and predict recovery in TBI patients. This cutting-edge technology could be vital in proving a serious brain injury due to a motorcycle, truck or car accident.What is Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)?
Diffusion tensor imaging was originally developed by the United States government in order to test soldiers for brain injuries after coming back from combat. It tracks the brain's white matter tracts to help identify traumatic lesions. In recent years, doctors have been using this technology more and more to diagnose brain injuries among the general public.
Diffusion tensor imaging is used in conjunction with conventional MRI techniques in order to provide 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional visualization of changes to white matter in the brain. DTI scans are able to provide image contrast that was previously unattainable using conventional MRI techniques.Compassionate Brain Injury Representation
