Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of mortality and disability among young individuals, especially in high-income countries [40]. According to a meta-analysis, combining reports from 23 European countries between 1980 and 2003, the incidence rate is about 235 per 100,000 [59]. Increasingly, imaging techniques play a crucial role in the diagnosis and management of patients with craniocerebral trauma, often influencing life or death decisions.
