The ACR formed the ACR Head Injury Institute (HII) to use its unique skills to help advance the diagnosis, understanding and treatment of head injuries.
One of the greatest needs in the advancement of head injury medicine is the identification and development of biomarkers that help identify the nature and severity of a head injury. The HII brings a broad and deep range of capabilities and relationships to this challenge.
The many initiatives of the HII involve significant volunteer time from accomplished faculty and staff at over 40 of the nation’s leading medical centers and practices.
The mission of the ACR Head Injury Institute (HII) is to bring together head injury specialists to advance research, prevention and treatment of head injuries through the application of diagnostic imaging.
The ACR has a wealth of resources in research, education, clinical practice and advocacy. Under the auspices of the HII, we would like to share what we are learning in the head injury space with practitioners in order to provide an even higher standard of care to their patients.
