International State-Of-The-Science Meeting On Blast-Induced Tinnitus, November 15-16, 2011
Tinnitus is often associated with acoustic trauma and head injuries that are prevalent with blast-related injuries and is the number one service-connected disability for veterans. This meeting was a collaborative effort among the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the DoD Hearing Center of Excellence. The Program Coordinating Office is currently working with a distinguished expert panel of six international tinnitus experts to synthesize findings regarding the neurobiological basis of tinnitus, its association with PTSD and TBI, and current approaches to diagnosis and treatment.
