CT scans, MRIs, and EEGs are some of the most common tests for brain injury. However, please know that a normal result on those basic tests does not rule out permanent harm. If you are experiencing any symptoms associated with closed head trauma after an accident, consider requesting that more advanced tests (exp. PET scan; DTI; SWI) be performed.
No one living in South Carolina should be forced to live with an undiagnosed brain injury. Dealing with the effects of a TBI are hard enough. Being told that nothing is wrong with you simply because the MRI came back normal is not fair nor medically sound. So if you are still experiencing: dizziness, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, nausea, or any other problems more than a few weeks after your accident, consider seeking additional care from a neurologist who specializes in TBI.
