DTI Helps Identify Recovery In Concussion Patients

2016 15 Jun

Researchers using an advanced form of MRI called diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) have found a way to differentiate in advance those concussion patients who may be burdened long-term and those who would recover fully. The team of researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Health System led by Professor Michael L. Lipton were able... Read more

MRI Shows ‘Brain Scars’ in Military Personnel with Blast-related Concussion

2015 15 Dec

MRI shows brain damage in a high percentage of active duty U.S. military personnel who suffered blast-related mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), or concussion, according to a study published in the journal Radiology. Researchers used MRI to study 834 military service members with MTBI related to blast injuries. MRI scans revealed the presence of white... Read more

Older Patients Recover More Slowly from Concussion

2015 06 Oct

A new study published in the journal Radiology indicates that older people may have a more difficult time recovering from mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) or concussion. The finding could help to inform the development of separate management strategies for different age groups following concussion."Old age has been recognised as an independent predictor... Read more

Single Concussion May Cause Lasting Brain Damage

2013 11 Apr

A single concussion may cause lasting structural damage to the brain, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology."This is the first study that shows brain areas undergo measureable volume loss after concussion," said Yvonne W. Lui, M.D. [pictured below], Neuroradiology section chief and assistant professor of radiology at NYU... Read more
