This research study will ask children who are less than 18 years of age who have experienced a mild, moderate, or severe traumatic brain injury and have been admitted to hospital to participate.

Children who have undergone a head CT scan will have their CT images requested for analysis. Children will not undergo another CT scan for this research study.

Follow-up at hospital discharge and 30 and 90 days after the traumatic brain injury will occur to see how children are recovering from their injury. Follow-ups can be done in-person or over the telephone.

If there are no contraindications, your child can choose to undergo a brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The results of the MRI report will be put in your child’s medical record for the child’s doctors to use if needed.
