Military veterans often suffer health problems as a result of war zone deployment, training accidents and other traumas. These problems include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), brain injury and heart disease. But sometimes vets don't experience symptoms until long after the trauma occurs.
Researchers at Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI) have already developed tests to identify subtle brain and heart changes in adults as they age. We are now seeking veterans to participate in a new study: to see whether our tests can detect brain and cardiovascular injury in vets before they show symptoms. Early detection may enable vets to seek medical care to prevent or slow the development of diseases related to these injuries.
Established in 1952, HMRI conducts game-changing studies of the brain and heart and the connection between the two. HMRI scientists have helped develop the cerebrospinal fluid shunt system, automobile safety standards that prevent brain injury, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology, among other medical breakthroughs.
