Conclusion:

A significant proportion of patients evaluated for TBI do not meet the ACRM criteria for mTBI, however, they remain at high risk for experiencing adverse consequences from TBI and deserve inclusion in prospective TBI studies. Additional diagnostic approaches are needed to further sub-categorize this group into mTBI versus head injury without TBI.
