Abstract Reviews evidence from studies using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that bears on the problem of determining the extent of brain damage. It is argued that it is a mistake to focus narrowly on the results of computerized tomography (CT) examination or records of coma. Studies using MRI show that neither a normal CT scan nor a history of short or negligible loss of consciousness precludes the presence of significant brain damage after trauma. Information from a variety of sources should be considered, and posttraumatic amnesia should not be overlooked.
