Challenge of Diagnosing Brain Injuries

brain injury diagnosisBrain injuries may be attributed to severe long-term damage. Damage from a head injury may be treatable if healthcare workers diagnose the condition early, however, sometimes brain injuries get "lost" during an exam and other treatments.

See how challenging making the proper diagnosis may be? 

Not treating a brain injury properly could worsen symptoms or cause other permanent injuries to the victim. Not treating a neck injury properly can damage tissue, fail to foster healthy healing, and contribute to long-term pain management. Physicians are highly trained professionals, but their job is a challenging one and sometimes they make mistakes. Symptoms are not the only factor used in diagnostics. Medical tests, response to treatments, and other tools are used by medical staff to identify and treat a patient's injuries.
