Better Imaging for Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are some of the worst injuries we see in car accidents. They can leave wounds lasting a lifetime, and can completely alter the lifestyle of the victim and their family. Since the brain is such an amazingly complex and delicate piece of hardware, TBIs are often difficult to diagnose using currently available medical imaging technology. Now, a team of scientists from the University of San Diego has created a new technique that could soon lead to much better brain images.
