Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major public health problem for the United States with an incidence of over 500,000 cases admitted to hospital annually. Few proven therapies for TBI exist and the prognosis for individuals with moderate to severe TBI remains grim. Progress in improving outcomes for individuals with TBI depends upon prevention and on the continued development of better therapeutic regimens in all aspects of care. The TBI-CT Network is an efficient and cost-effective organization, serving as a major source of evidence-based trauma and rehabilitative medicine through the conduct of multi-center clinical studies in TBI and through the dissemination of research results.
