Edward Soll, M.D. – Medical Director and Litigation Consultant
EDWARD SOLL, MD, in 2015 developed The Concussion Group, LLC — a collaboration of MRI and neuroscientific experts who now contribute to the first quantitative Diffusion Tensor Imaging (qDTI) available at multiple cities in the USA. The Concussion Group is now known nationally as the most lawyer-friendly introduction to brain microstructure.
The program helps medical and legal teams to objectively measure the extent of brain damage when routine MRI and CT scans are reported as normal. The program has been useful for more than 500 patients experiencing difficulties from vehicular and industrial accidents as well as explosions and sports injuries.
In consultation with well-known neuroscientists, The Concussion Group uses MR/DTI for evaluating the white matter microstructure in the brain. The program evaluates patients suspected of having mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) with post-concussion syndromes. Specifically, Dr. Soll uses qDTI exams to evaluate white matter injury by determining if a patient’s individual FA (fractional anisotropy) deviates from the normal age and gender specific control subject data.
In July 2017, the Concussion Group affiliated with MINDSET, a consulting group at the University of New Mexico. This collaboration offered a control group of 1,500 neurotypical subjects, thus, allowing for statistically significant results across age and gender comparisons. Exam results provide reliable and valid data covering 48 regions of the brain, offering information for objective anatomic correlations in patients suffering from memory loss, cognitive, emotional, and executive dysfunction.
After receiving his undergraduate degree from St. Joseph’s College, Philadelphia, PA, Dr. Soll received a medical degree from Tulane University. Upon completion of his internship at Ochsner Foundation Hospital, he went on to residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Charity Hospital and United States Public Health Service. Dr. Soll served as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Tulane University School of Medicine and also served as a consulting radiologist at Charity Hospital in New Orleans. Prior to establishing his own outpatient imaging centers, Dr. Soll was a staff radiologist and served as Chief of the Medical Staff at Tulane Lakeside Hospital. He is certified by the American Board of Radiology and his professional associations include the Louisiana State Medical Society, Jefferson Parish Medical Society, American College of Radiology, Society of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, American Institute of Ultrasound, The American Society of Functional Neuroradiology and the RSNA (Radiologic Society of North America). Through his practice, his principal areas of interest have included MRI, CT and Nuclear Medicine as it pertains to Neuroradiology and Musculoskeletal Imaging.
His current practice is limited to the evaluation of patients that have had brain injury with post-concussion difficulties. He often testifies as an expert in State and Federal courts.
