Football-Related Concussion Study

Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital is conducting a study looking at the effect of football-related concussions on the brain. We are using a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequence to look at the brain and also correlating with genetic testing to see if some children have a higher risk of worse outcomes after concussion. 

Your child will receive two MRI scans in order to help us study the long-term effects of concussion.

In order to be eligible to participate, your child must be:

  • male
  • right-handed
  • 14 to 18 years old

Please complete the form below to be considered for participation in the study.
