Ralph G. DePalma Memorial TBI Clinical Strategies

Longitudinal Changes of White Matter Microstructure following Traumatic Brain Injury in U.S. Military Service Members

by Ping-Hong Yeh, MB, MA, PhD
Seminar date: 10/27/2022

Description: In this talk, I will present the findings of a recent study that we analyzed diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) metrics across the spectrum of traumatic brain injury severity and evaluated their trajectories in military service members after a remote injury. Possible pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the different imaging findings will be described. Association between DTI metrics and neuropsychological functions, and future study directions will be briefly discussed as well.

Target audience: researchers and clinicians.
