Answer

A study by Bosco et al examined prognostic value of SSEPs and CT scan evaluation in acute traumatic brain injury. The study revealed a highly significant improvement in outcome prediction when the model included a pool of amplitudes and latencies, referred to different early-evoked components pN20, pP25, fP20,cP22, N30, P45, and N60, associated to CT scan hypodensity values, compared with the use of the cortical parietal N20/P25 alone.
