New Imaging Technique May Help Treat Patients with Traumatic Brain Injuries

By Grant Law Office on March 27, 2012

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) like concussions and puncture wounds to the brain can cause serious, permanent physical impairments or even death. A new type of diagnostic imaging technique may help patients with newly-suffered traumatic brain injuries as well as patients living with disabilities caused by a traumatic brain injury that happened in the past, according to a recent article from Highlight Health.

Brain Injury Atlanta

A recent study from the University of Pittsburgh and published in the Journal of Neurosurgery found that using high-definition fiber tracking (HDFT) to take images of patients’ brains might allow neurologists to see where TBI has interrupted communication between different parts of the brain by injuring or destroying the neural pathways. The HDFT images are created by processing MRI images through a special program.

Researchers say that the technology, which gives a clearer picture of the state of parts of the brain, might help physicians figure out why a traumatic brain injury causes certain disabilities, like difficulty remembering words or keeping one’s balance, by showing what parts of the brain were disrupted by the injury. This could lead to better understanding and treatment of traumatic brain injuries, with better outcomes for those who suffer them.
