The
Concussion
Diagnosis Project

RESEARCH ARTICLES

As of 2020, there is no single consensus-based clinical definition for mTBI (concussion).


PROBLEM

Concussion tests are different for everyone. What works on you may fail on someone else. These tests often fail to spot even mild brain injuries.

This means that you may be undiagnosed even if you have severe brain injury. This could prevent you from getting the financial and social support that you need during your recovery period. Many people just like you have to suffer because there is not enough awareness about mTBI (concussion) diagnosis.
