Specializes in Neurology

Yes: A typical MRI of Brain is unlikely to show evidence for Brain injury in mild TBI and some cases of moderate TBI unless Diffusion Tensor Imaging Protocol is used (DTI). Regardless the diagnosis of mild Brain Injury (I.e. Concussion ) is made based on symptoms and signs and not based on imaging.
