To investigate neural correlates and anatomical factors contributing to the development and maintenance of PTSD, depression, substance abuse, and functional impairment related to traumatic brain injury, the VISN 17 COE features a Philips 3T mobile MRI and custom-built research support vehicle to facilitate interviewing, recruiting, and testing of MRI research participants. Plans are also underway to use the support vehicle as an emergency research and support platform in a rapid response mode, in the case of regional disasters.
