Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious and global
public health issue. Focal and diffuse are the two ways
to classify brain injuries. Multi-echo Susceptibility
weighted imaging provides phase with better SNR and CNR
and R2*, making it a sensitive technique for brain
injury. A comparative study of focal (fluid percussion
injury) and diffuse (open field blast) TBI using multi
echo SWI has been made in this study.
