Abstract

Blood-brain barrier (BBB) could be impaired following traumatic brain injury. Here we describe a modified technique for noninvasive longitudinal assessment of the of BBB integrity based on dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging technique to evaluate the longitudinal progression of BBB leakage following traumatic brain injury in rats.
