What is a Focal Brain Injury?
A Focal Brain Injury is a kind of Traumatic or Acquired Brain Injury that occurs when the damage is localized or confined to one area of the brain, such as the injury caused when a bullet or other object enters the brain or a person receives a blow to the head. The same event may cause both Focal and Diffuse/Axonal injuries.
A Diffuse Brain Injury causes damage in multiple areas of the brain.
A Focal Brain Injury can be mild, or severe and debilitating.
