- WTC CHEST (Pulmonary Abnormalities, Diastolic Dysfunction, and World Trade Center Exposure: Implications for Diagnosis and Treatment)
The proposed project will evaluate the effects of World Trade Center (WTC) exposure in WTC responders 10-13 years following the events of 9/11. Prior studies have described persistent pulmonary function abnormalities in a significant portion of responders. Our stud...
- Effect of Particulate Matter Exposure on Carotid Plaque Neovascularization Using Dynamic Contrast Enhances Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The purpose of this study is to determine whether exposure to inhalation of particulate matter (inhaled particles) has an effect on carotid atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries in the neck) and whether this relates to the patient's coronary artery calcium score (test for cal...
- WTC RENAL (Renal and Cardiovascular Impairment in WTC Responders: Implications for Diagnosis and Treatment)
The purpose of this project is to determine the association between exposures to ambient particulate matter (PM) occurring during the World Trade Center (WTC) catastrophe and the development of renal damage and cardiac abnormalities. The primary objective of the current propos...
