Diagnosing TBI and CTE

Diagnosis of TBI usually involves a combination of medical history, physical examination, and imaging tests such as MRI or CT scans. These assessments help determine the extent of brain injury and guide the treatment plan. CTE, however, is more challenging to diagnose, as it is a condition often associated with repeated head injuries and can only be definitively diagnosed post-mortem. However, certain symptoms and history of head trauma can lead to a presumptive diagnosis of CTE.

Symptoms and Effects of CTE

CTE is a progressive degenerative disease found in individuals with a history of repetitive brain trauma. Symptoms may include:

  • Memory loss
  • Confusion
  • Impaired judgment
  • Impulse control problems
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Parkinson’s
  • Progressive dementia

These symptoms can have a profound impact on an individual's daily life and well-being.

Early Warning Signs of CTE

The early signs of CTE can be subtle and may be mistaken for other conditions. They can include changes in mood, behavior, and cognitive abilities. Early recognition of these signs, particularly in individuals with a history of multiple concussions or head injuries, is crucial for management and support.
