We present a case of a 58-year-old male who suffered multiple injuries after being hit by a motor vehicle while crossing the road. MRI of the brain showed diffuse axonal injury and multiple cortical hemorrhages that suggested irreversible brain damage which could prevent him from any sort of meaningful recovery. The patient’s neurosurgery team argued that there may be a chance of regained function despite imaging findings. The prognostic value of neuroimaging was brought into question. We will investigate the utility of neuroimaging in TBI and its ability to predict clinical outcomes.
