This study investigated myelin damage in subacute moderate to severe TBI using ViSTa-MWI. The results showed widespread reductions of MWF in patients, consistent with pathology involving diffuse axonal injury. Furthermore, the extent of myelin damage was strongly correlated with measures of injury severity and cognitive impairment, demonstrating its clinical relevance.
