Mr Edward Dyson BSc MRCS


The long-term neuropsychological sequelae of diffuse axonal damage from traumatic brain injury can be devastating. This is compounded by the absence of disease modifying treatments. Novel MRI techniques have shown recent promise in further explaining cognitive deficits following TBI and in predicting outcome. These may also be of use in stratifying patients for clinical trials.
