Volumetric 1H MRSI and DTI measurements have been obtained in subjects with mild and moderate traumatic brain injury at a time shortly after injury and then again at a later time point. Restoration to normal values was found in mild injury subjects, consistent with recovery of cognitive function, although continued alteration of metabolites was observed in one subject.
