    Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Postconcussion Syndrome This book translates leading-edge research on mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) and post-concussive syndrome (PCS) into an evidence base for clinicians involved in the diagnosis and management of MTBI. The purposes of this study were to (1) determine the incidence and persistence of symptoms after mild traumatic brain injury and (2) ascertain whether Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV), symptom criteria for postconcussion syndrome in adults are appropriate for use in by:
