Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) affects 1.7 million people annually, yet the diagnosis and treatment can be highly ineffective. Using cutting edge, non-invasive, in vivo diffusion imaging techniques combined with HDFT analysis and visualization, the Schneider Lab is working toward more comprehensive diagnosis of TBI. Our lab’s goal is to create a fast, effective method for looking at white matter damage in individual patients, and eventually allow medical doctors to provide more useful prognosis for frustrated patients. HDFT has already been applied in a number of clinical and surgical cases here at UPMC, and holds much promise.
