The Costs of Recovering From a Serious Brain Injury

- Mild concussion
- Moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Severe TBI
- Uncomplicated TBI
- Complicated TBI
A definitive diagnosis is an important part of ensuring you receive appropriate treatment. The diagnostic process can include a complete physical exam and imaging tests, including a CT scan and MRI, and blood tests.
