Abstract:

Subcortical white matter WM injury and global decreased fractional anisotropy are associated with repetitive exposure to nonhypoxic hypobaric conditions, in both aerospace physiology inside observers and high-altitude U-2 pilots. A single hypobaric hypoxic occupational exposure to 7620 meters 5.45 psi induces magnetic resonance imaging MRI changes that reflect transient brain injury.
