Study 1: Identify Risk Factors Associated with Subdural Hygroma (SDG) following Decompressive Craniectomy (DC), a neurosurgical procedure that removes part of the skull to relieve squeezing pressure on the brain after a severe brain Injury. SDG is the collection of cerebrospinal fluids over the brain after DC that may result in delayed head-trauma complications.
Study 2: Identify quantitative, anatomic measurements of head-neck images that distinguished patients with and without Craniocervical Distraction Injuries (CCDIs). CCDIs are skull base, atlas, and axis injuries from motor vehicle crashes and pedestrian strikes.
