Traumatic Brain Injury - TBI
In correlation with some of the nation's leading medical experts and trial attorneys who specialize in "mild traumatic brain injury (mild TBI)", MediVisuals has developed an interactive animated software that demonstrates how traumatic brain injuries can occur without a significant blow to the head and without being evidenced on imaging studies.
Animated sequences based upon crash tests demonstrate the movements associated with a "typical" sudden deceleration incident. Multiple other animation sequences explain the involved anatomy and show the soft, fragile brain impacting on the hard and uneven inner surface of the skull. The sequences demonstrate how multiple axonal injuries can occur from the shearing forces (both with and without hemorrhage and both with and without positive findings on imaging studies). An additional animation sequence demonstrates how the combined deceleration and rotational forces result in axonal injury in the corpus callosum.
