General Electric and Houston Methodist Concussion Study
A team of researchers and clinicians at Houston Methodist is working with General Electric (GE) to evaluate next-generation imaging technologies to improve diagnosis of concussions and mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). Concussions are among the most difficult injuries for physicians to diagnose and treat. Current brain imaging options, such as CT or standard MRI scans, cannot detect the presence of a mild TBI.
