The selection of an inversion recovery pulse sequence as well as particular values of the parameters for measurement of brain water have been derived after extensive studies with calibration standards of known relaxation times and in vivo infusion edema animal models. Most importantly, the technique has been validated in man. When stated in terms of water content, the percentage swelling was calculated from the equation 100ðf w À f wn Þ=ð1 À f w Þ where fw represents the water content of the Traumatic brain edema in di¤use and focal injury: cellular or vasogenic?

Brain edema and ADC after di¤use TBI. 0001), consistent with a predominantly cellular edema. Water in CT type III/IV was markedly elevated compared to less di¤use injury in CT type II not surprising, as the ICP values of these patients were low. 0001), consistent with a predominantly cellular edema. The distribution of ADC among normal controls, swelling, and non-swelling patients correlated with CT classification (Fig. 2). CBF in di¤use injury with reduced ADC It is possible that the reductions in ADC seen in diffuse injury were caused by frank ischemic damage.

Comparison of blood pressures and ICP measured prior to and after return indicated no major change throughout the course of study. The ADC computed from hemispheric regions of interest in 8 normal volunteers averaged ð0:82 G 0:05Þ Â 10À3 mm 2 /sec. Henceforth, we will drop the common multiplicative factor 10À3 . 08 in the non-swelling group. This was A. Marmarou et al. 26 Water content, ICP, and CT classification in focal TBI Fig. 2.
