Press Releases: 12/06/2014 - 14:14
Traumatic brain injuries affect 1.6 million people in the EU every year. 70,000 don't survive and a further 100,000 are left with a permanent disability. An EU-funded project – with partners in Finland, France, Lithuania and the UK– is collecting data from hundreds of patients who have suffered brain trauma and using it to build software which will improve diagnosis and predict the outcome of treatments.
