Hello,
This is Dr. Shah and am reviewing your question now.
I will respond to your question or request additional information shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Hi,

This is a general question. Brain damage always results from brain injury. Brain injury could be due to trauma or secondary to other conditions. Signs and symptoms depend upon the area of the brain that has been damaged. In general, you will see physical symptoms like (loss of consciousness, confusion, disorientation, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, difficulty speaking, communication etc) and cognitive symptoms (profound confusion, agitation, slurred speech, unusual behavior, coma etc). CT scan is a very good tool, but MRI is considered superior for detecting brain injury.
