Validating Concussion Through Brain Imaging

For those suffering from concussion and post concussion syndrome, it is commonly known that there is not one definitive test substantiating the injury. In today’s broadcast, we will discuss in more detail neuroimaging modalities showing promise for legitimizing the effects of head injuries.
