Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a highly common form of disability in children affecting the entire lifespan. Persistent deficits in motor control have been documented following TBI. One of the major contributors to these persistent problems is diffuse axonal injury (DAI). Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has shown promise but has yet to be fully validated for its potential role in TBI diagnostics and evaluation.
