Veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who were exposed to intense explosions caused largely by IEDs — improvised explosive devices planted along roadways to target military vehicles — may have suffered brain injuries without demonstrating any symptoms.
That is the finding of new research, which has revealed that vets exposed to these kinds of blasts are still at risk of damage in their brain’s white matter, even though symptoms may not present.
The findings, which have been published in the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation, suggest that the absence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) diagnosis does not take away a vet’s risk of brain damage from exposure to blasts.
