The severity of traumatic brain injury can range from mild to severe cases. Typically, special tests are conducted to determine whether a patient suffers a TBI or not. Unfortunately, the mild cases rarely show visible signs of TBI. Furthermore, diagnostic tests such as the CT scan and MRI are not enough to detect mild TBI.
