TBI: A small slow oozing head bleed may go unnoticed on brain imaging (ct/mri) in the first few weeks after a closed tbi. For worsening symptoms, a repeat ct/mri should be obtained. Repeat imaging study is advised even months or years after the initial injury to evaluate for things such as subdural hematoma which may not present noticeable symptoms until months or even years after the initial injury.
