Center for Neurological Studies #GivingTuesday Fundraiser
Your generosity makes it possible for CNS to continue important research on accurately diagnosing TBIs, starting with their first visit to the doctor. Since 2011, patients who had otherwise not received an accurate diagnosis have come to CNS seeking answers for the cause of their symptoms – memory loss, headaches, depression, anxiety, cognitive impairments, and more – and gotten them.
This #GivingTuesday, November 27, your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. And on Giving Tuesday Nov 27, Facebook and PayPal will match a total of $7 Million in donations. Thank you for your support. Nonprofit and donor matching limits apply. Learn more.
Donate to CNS’ Hope After Combat
The Center for Neurological Studies is using their patented technology to detect mild-to-moderate brain injuries in combat veterans who have been exposed to a bomb blast.
We take the mystery out of TBIs and effectively quantify each person’s unique injuries, linking behaviors directly to the area in the brain where they have been detected. With your support, our body of research will grow and will be used to educate the medical professionals across the country that are working to heal them.
About Center for Neurological Studies
The focus of CNS is to advance scientific research for neurovascular disease through advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to improve the quality of life for people who suffer from TBI.
Advanced MRI techniques have been noted as “AN EQUALIZER” for its ability to detect the presence of different injury sub-types, thereby improving diagnostic accuracy and, further, to pioneer innovative new treatment options to alleviate symptoms and provide for significant improvements in daily living.
The CNS team has taken MRI imaging even further with advanced tools including susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI).
DTI is the most sensitive MRI approach currently available and can be used to identify tract-specific lesions caused by injury. SWI is 3-6 times more sensitive as it accounts for susceptibility of all brain elements, including hemorrhages.
