Although traumatic brain injury has been investigated using variable imaging techniques, including MRI, the relatively low spatial resolution has limited the ability to determine tissue injury type and to predict the tissue fate. Results previously reported are controversial, and are seemingly dependent on the severity of injury. Furthermore, prediction of tissue fate in TBI using low resolution data is very difficult. This study employed high spatial resolution MRI to investigate moderate TBI longitudinally up to one month post injury. This study provides a better delineation of tissue injury types and assists in the prediction of tissue fate following TBI.
