The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently developed a new set of guidelines aimed at doctors, parents, and school staff to cooperatively care for children who've suffered a head injury or concussion. Released in early September, the guidelines provide doctors with the tools they need for the best outcomes for children who've suffered concussions. And, one of these guidelines is using the term “traumatic brain injury” to refer to concussions in order to enforce how serious the condition is. Children in particular usually suffer concussions from accidents in sports, falls, or [...]

New Imaging Process Reveals More about Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries

Modern medicine has made huge strides in the past decade in the detection, awareness, and treatment of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Until recently, however, the majority of non-invasive imaging tools were not suitable or able to produce useful results on living brains and patients. Diffusion tensor imaging measures different properties of brain tissue than traditional MRI or CT systems, and is well-suited to detecting even mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs), such as those resulting from auto accidents or falls, in living patients. Previously, the only way to positively diagnose an mTBI [...]
