In 2014, firearms killed 33,736 people in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Researchers in a new study have developed a state-of-the-art tool to help predict a person's chance of survival after a gunshot wound, even with a head injury.
This survival-predicting tool is called the SPIN-Score, which stands for Surviving Penetrating Injury to the Brain, and it predicted whether people would survive with 96 percent accuracy.
