New MRI technique to detect acute brain injuries

Original broadcast date: September 6, 2009

Acute brain injuries from concussive forces have the potential to cause significant long-term cognitive damage if not recognized and diagnosed early. To date, imaging technology such as CT and MRI has limitations regarding the detection of specific types of brain damage. New findings, reported by researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the August 26 issue of the journal Radiology, demonstrate a technology that circumvents this problem.
