Neuroimaging and pathology

Description:

Neuroimaging has revolutionized all of clinical neuroscience especially how gross brain pathology maybe identified within the living patient. In traumatic brain injury (TBI) computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the mainstayneuroimaging methods for the pathological identi?cation of acute and sub-acute traumatic injury, with MRI best fitted to identifying and quantifying the more chronic effects. However, all neuroimaging ?ndings of trauma related pathology are but gross indicatorsof the underlying microscopic cellular and vascularpathologies that form the idea of all TBI.
