Dear AuntMinnie member,

The risk of traumatic brain injury (TBI) during participation in sports raises significant concern among clinicians, particularly regarding long-term effects. And functional limitations can persist well beyond the six-month follow-up, even in patients with mild injuries.

In this month's featured story, we're highlighting research conducted by a team from the U.K. that suggests that clinicians should beware of "taking an overoptimistic view" of outcomes after sports-related TBI. Read more about the group's findings here.

After you've perused that story, navigate over to our CT content area for more coverage of the modality, including a study that explores the effect of an automated protocoling algorithm on radiologist CT workload, another that investigates the use of point-of-care decision support for reducing unnecessary CT imaging, and a third that suggests that customized decision support can reduce CT order errors.

Then check out our coverage of even more CT research, including the following:
