New Brain Imaging Can Help Brain Injury Victims
Posted on May 16, 2013
Accident victims who suffer brain injuries have new hope for effective treatments and care with a recently released diagnostic imaging technique.
The new imaging technique uses magnetotoencephalography (MEG) technology that is already available to physicians. The method helps healthcare workers forecast long-term brain damage. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) victims do not necessarily have to experience a severe TBI in order to suffer years of effects. Now doctors can examine electrical currents in the brain to measure brain connectivity, which will show specific areas of damage in the most sophisticated way possible.
According to the Journal of Neurosurgery, the new method takes just a 1-2 minutes to complete. For accident victims, our Raleigh injury lawyers believe this will help build signficantly more powerful medical evidence when negotiating settlements or representing injured persons on trial. Showing this precise analysis of the condition of an individual's brain injury will help build a case that reflects compensation for future losses.
Seniors with brain injuries usually acquire them through slip-and-fall accidents, students commonly experience brain damage in sports injuries, and anyone can suffer head trauama when injured at work or in a car accident.
