PhD.2Author Information 1Professor Pediatrics and Neurology 2Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Loma Linda, California Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation: August 1997 - Volume 12 - Issue 4 - p 13-35 Buy Abstract Advances in structural and functional neuroimaging techniques are likely to improve our understanding of the pathophysiology of disorders of consciousness due to traumatic and nontraumatic brain injury. As this evolves over the next decade, such data, combined with clinical and other neurodiagnostic modalities, will allow the development of predictive models that will have a variety of bedside applications. In this review several of the newer neuroimaging techniques that use magnetic resonance imaging are described, as are the basic principles required for their acquisition and their potential clinical and research applications. © Williams & Wilkins 1997.
