According to the article, a diffused axonal injury is “one of the most common traumatic brain injuries” and that “instead of occurring in a specific area”, the injury “occurs over a more widespread area,” and also adds, “in addition to being one of the most common types of brain injuries, it’s also one of the most devastating.”
