Johns Hopkins Medicine Suburban - Research: Imaging Acute Brain Injury
New Directions Winter 2012
Research: Imaging Acute Brain Injury
Date: November 1, 2012
Suburban Hospital is a clinical site for a research study that will use MRI to help identify brain injuries in patients with head trauma. The impetus for the study, funded in part by the Department of Defense through the Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine and Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, is the number of military men and women who have suffered traumatic brain injuries in the line of duty. In conjunction with the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) at NIH, and Suburban, study investigators hope to discover better ways to diagnose and treat patients with head trauma.
Who: For people admitted to Suburban Hospital within 48 hours of a traumatic head injury.
Purpose: To determine if the use of MRI in diagnosing TBI can help clinicians visualize and therefore identify and treat a concussion sooner.
For more information, contact Mary Jo Rucker, RN, BSN, 301-896-2342.
