A head injury occurs as an outcome of trauma to the brain, scalp or head and might be identified as closed or permeating. Your physician might execute a neurologic and physical exam in addition to head CT, head MRI or head x-ray to analyze the nature and severity of your injury and identify suitable treatment. While patients with minor head injuries might be observed and treated with drug, more major distressing brain injuries might require emergency situation like get rid of embolism or alleviate pressure on the brain. Stressful brain injuries range from mild to severe. The symptoms of a head injury might occur immediately adhering to injury, or they might develop slowly over several hours or days. Specific types and symptoms of head injuries include: Concussion: Also called a mild terrible brain injury. Nerve fibers that expand from central body of a nerve cell are extended or torn, completely damaging the brain cells and creating other issues within the nervous system. The therapy of head injuries depends on the type of injury and the patient's condition. To evaluate the extent of a head injury, a doctor might do a physical and neurologic examination and imaging tests such as: CT check of the head: Computed tomography scanning incorporates special x-ray equipment with innovative computers to generate several pictures or images of the head and brain. In choose patients, doctors use MRI of the brain, including special MR scanning methods called diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging and MR spectroscopy, to aid identify brain injuries that not have easily obvious abnormalities on a more routine MR scan.
