Physicians in Louisiana face many challenges when treating brain injury victims, especially since traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) affect each patient differently. This is why the National Science Foundation (NSF) is planning to launch a four-year study to increase efforts to predict short- and long-term outcomes of patients with serious brain-related injuries. Researchers also hope to utilize machine-learning technology to better categorize TBI patients and present patient-specific interventions.
