Aims and objectives: To explore the diagnostic value of SWI and DTI on different severity’s traumatic brain injury(TBI).
Methods and materials: Totally 60 TBI patients (including 20 mild TBI patients, 20 moderate TBI patients and 20 severe TBI patients) and 20 health volunteer underwent SWI, DTI and conventional MRI examination. The numbers of involving regions, numbers and areas of hemorrhagic lesions detected by SWI, and FA valu[...]
Results: The differences of involving regions’ number, lesions’ number, lesion’s areas detected by SWI between each two groups were statistically significant (P<0.05). Severe TBI group got the maximum number of involving regions, lesions, and the largest areas. Followed by moderate group an[...]
Conclusion: SWI and DTI are effective in evaluating the severity of traumatic brain injury.
