Diagnosing Traumatic Brain Injury

It is an immense challenge to diagnose traumatic brain injuries (TBI). TBI is often characterized as being the "invisible injury" because the symptoms can be difficult to detect and are often delayed, leaving victims in a struggle to deal with an injury they do not understand without the support of health care professionals.

At Rosenthal & Kreeger LLP in Roseville, California, we have more than 25 years of experience representing the interests of injury victims, including those suffering from TBI. We work closely with experts to identify the injury and demonstrate the current and ongoing needs of our clients so we can press for a verdict or settlement that fully provides for their damages.

How To Diagnose A TBI

Diagnosing traumatic brain injuries is done primarily through testing of the brain as well as behavioral assessments. If TBI is suspected, a number of tests can be run to determine the extent of the brain injury, such as:

  • Computer tomography (CT) scans
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Functional MRI
  • Diffuse tensor imaging (DTI)
  • Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)
  • Positron emission tomography (PET)

In addition to these scans and tests using equipment, a neuropsychological assessment should also be administered in order to analyze brain function. The neuropsychological assessment is a task-oriented evaluation that relies upon standardized testing methods to evaluate higher cognitive functioning as well as basic sensory-motor processes.
