Hello

Findings of MTBI may persist for six months or longer.It varies with individual.
Newer techniques like diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is widely used for diagnosis.It increases the sensitivity of detecting MTBI. However findings need clinical correlation.

Arthodec is mainly prescribed as analgesic.It contains diclofenac and misoprostol.Misoprostol protects gastric mucosa from possible irritation caused by diclofenac.
Arthodec may be prescribed in MTBI.
