The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, part of the National Institutes of Health, is looking for individuals to participate in clinical studies. Participating in clinical trials allows you to play an active role in research on the nature and causes of many disorders of the brain and nervous system, and to possibly help physician-scientists develop future treatments. The information below is designed to help you quickly learn about actively recruiting research studies for which you or someone you know may be eligible.

Description:

To evaluate a novel early neuroimaging diagnostic tool for hospitalized children with traumatic brain injury. This tool is used to detect evidence of traumatic brain injury on routine brain scans. The tool combines features invisible to the human eye but detectable by computer software with expert knowledge.This study will evaluate how well the tool can perform in a real health care setting. It is believed that it will greatly improve the efficacy and quality of care provided to children after traumatic brain injury.

Eligibility Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Hospitalized with TBI - Age: less than 18 years of age who undergoes routine head CT in the acute period with any severity of injury based on Glasgow Coma Scale score (3 to15). Exclusion Criteria: - Non hospitalized - Non traumatic brain injury
