Approximately 80,000 emergency department visits per year are the result of a head injury in an adult over the age of 65. Epidemiological studies have identified increased risk for dementia in head injury patients, however there is scarce neuroimaging evidence to support this direct connection.
In this webinar we review the current brain imaging literature on concussion and mTBI and share new findings; we then discuss some of the research linking head injury to dementia and future directions.
