Littleton, CO (PRWEB) December 22, 2015
CereScan Corp. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Molecular Imaging of Colorado, have been approved by TRICARE, the health care insurance provider of the United States Department of Defense Military Health System. TRICARE provides health benefits for active-duty military members, retirees, and their families.
“Serving the needs of our nation’s military population has been a long-term objective of CereScan,” said John Kelley, Chairman and CEO of CereScan Corp. “Being able to provide our imaging services to the military and their families signals our commitment to helping both active duty and veterans with the most important first step, the correct diagnosis. By achieving this vital first step, our expert physicians are able to help these men and women get better, quicker, through collaboration with their treating doctors.”
Traumatic brain injuries and PTSD are two of the most common diagnoses soldiers receive after returning from battle. Although an estimated 10-20% of veterans experience some form of traumatic brain injury, only a small fraction receive proper diagnosis and treatment.
For many veterans who are experiencing one or both of these debilitating disorders, following the best course of treatment is difficult without an accurate diagnosis. That’s where CereScan makes all the difference. CereScan’s SPECT imaging technology goes beyond traditional diagnostic tools to review cerebral blood flow and cellular processes that help accurately diagnose traumatic brain injuries, helping physicians and patients create an effective treatment plan.
“Our research through the ‘Invisible Brain Injury Project’, as well as other outreach efforts related to understanding and treating their wounds of war, particularly as it relates to chronic Traumatic Brain Injury, is indicative of our commitment to them,” Kelley added “The addition of TRICARE to our list of insurers provides greater opportunity to assist those most in need.”
