MRIs Detect Change within Children Athletes

Researchers in North Carolina, Maryland, and Texas studied the effects of playing football for one season had on children aged 8-13. While most are familiar with the concussions pro-football athletes experienced, these researchers wanted to see if other head impacts that do not lead to a concussion have an effect. 

The study included 25 children with average age of 11, and they underwent scanning before and after their season of football. While necessary steps were taken with children who did experience a concussion, they were excluded from this study. The results showed differences in white matter in the brain.

Among this test group, there were changes in the white matter and several other connections within the brain. Researchers could not conclude if there was any long-term affects to these changes, but it was noted there was a decrease in activity in some areas of the brain, at least after the season of football.

The hospital has also installed video, music, and soothing ambient lighting to ease the MRI scanning process.

MRI Suites are not always known for their comfort or ease. MRI Suites are usually, small enclosed spaces, which cause can anxieties in patients. They can be dark and loud as well. For many, MRI scanning is not an enjoyable process. However, with innovations in MRI comfort care, like at Pardee Hospital, there are opportunities for new technologies.
