Pre- & Post-Accident Study PITTSBURGH, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- In a push to improve diagnosis of returning military personnel for traumatic brain injuries, three leading military medical centers -- Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., the Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton in California and Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii -- recently purchased the I-Portal(R) NOTC System (Neuro-Otologic Test Center) from Neuro Kinetics, Inc., (NKI) (http://www.neuro-kinetics.com).

Fast-growing NKI manufactures noninvasive medical diagnostic equipment used worldwide for neurologic, otologic and vestibular disorder evaluations.

The three medical centers join a growing roster of U.S. military medical facilities that are using Neuro Kinetics' NOTC system, including the Naval Medical Center Portsmouth in Virginia and Madigan Army Medical Center in Washington.

Numerous other federal government medical facilities, including those operated by the Veterans Administration and the National Institutes of Health, also rely on NKI products for conducting daily clinical evaluations of patients as well as undertaking a wide range of research projects.

Terms of the recent sales were not disclosed.

"We're delighted to support the military in improving the quality of diagnosis and care for military personnel," said NKI's Alex Kiderman, Ph.D., chief technology officer.

Kiderman added that testing for signs of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) are top priorities for NKI.
