Long-term effects of repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (rmTBI) with the short versus long interinjury interval were explored using quantitative DTI and immunohistological staining. Significant changes in DTI metrics under the impact site and the lateral part of white matter in the ipsilesional brain after rmTBI may suggest the exacerbated microstructural damage induced by repetitive injury with the short interval.
