High School Football Players Show Brain Changes after One Season
CHICAGO – Some high school football players exhibit measurable brain
changes after a single season of play even in the absence of concussion,
according to a study presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological
Society of North America (RSNA).
“This study adds to the growing body of evidence that a
season of play in a contact sport can affect the brain in the absence of
clinical findings,” said Christopher T. Whitlow, M.D., Ph.D., M.H.A., associate
professor of radiology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
