Brain trauma can be detected by new scanning and imaging techniques

A recent article profiled three new imaging techniques that can help physicians diagnose mild brain damage that is typically invisible to standard CT and MRI scans. Scientists hypothesize that mild head trauma damages the brain’s white matter that delivers messages between neurons. One of the most promising techniques to discover this brain trauma is called diffusion tensor imaging, that tracks water molecules in the brain’s white matter.
