DENVER - CereScan, a Denver-based neuro-diagnostics company, is partnering with the Tug McGraw Foundation to seek new and more efficient identification of and treatment for invisible wounds such as Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).

The Invisible Brain Injury Project is aimed at addressing mTBI sustained by current and former military members.

CereScan is dedicated to performing state-of-the-art functional brain imaging for the identification of a wide array of brain-based disorders.

The company's proprietary process includes the latest generation of high-resolution gamma cameras, highest quality radio pharmaceuticals from GE Healthcare, the industry's leading brain-image reconstruction software and specially trained board-certified physicians.

Qualified participants in the Invisible Brain Injury Project will take part in a three-phased approach to address the identification, measurement and treatment of mTBI.

"mTBI is considered the signature injury of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and while its pathology is unclear, its effects are devastatingly apparent," said Jennifer Brusstar, Tug McGraw Foundation president and CEO.

"It is the mission of the Tug McGraw Foundation to enhance the understanding of brain-related trauma and the factors that influence recovery."
