The objective of this study is to identify, after EMDR therapy, the regions of brain metabolism that evolve during the stress exposure of a war scene with symptomatic remission in a group of military veterans suffering from PTSD, and to secondarily search for predictive metabolic features.MethodsWe recruited 15  military veterans suffering from PTSD who performed an18F-FDG PET sensitized by the exposure to a virtual war scene, before (T0) and after (T1) EMDR therapy.

CONCLUSIONS: It is important to understand the mental health needs of perinatal veterans given their vulnerability to develop mental health concerns, including suicidal ideation. The unpredicted pattern of correlations determined in this study implies the need for multifaceted measures for safety-related mental health assessment of perinatal veterans, including assessment for PTSS. Strengths of this study include its longitudinal assessment and a sampling from a general population of veterans. Limitations include small sample size, a single gestational time point, and loss of participants who did not return for their postp...
