PITTSBURGH SCHOOL OF MEDICINE GETS GRANT TO STUDY BRAIN INJURY

11/10/2012

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine will study new imaging tools for assessing traumatic brain injuries of wounded military personnel, according to a report by the Tribune Review. The study includes $5.4 million in government grants from the Department of Defense. The method used is called high-definition fiber tracking. This is needed because conventional CT and MRI scans often do not catch damage to the brain’s neural cables that may cause cognitive or physical impairments after brain injuries.
