Abstract

BACKGROUND: Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is a public health problem that is recognized as a "silent epidemic" in its late stages due to undiagnosed axonal damage rated 13 and above on the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). Injury-related microhemorrhages often cannot be detected on computed tomography (CT) scans and conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This study aims to investigate whether susceptibility-weighted imaging is feasible in mTBI patients.
