Algorithm predicts PTSD risk within 10 days of trauma

March 17, 2015

Researchers have developed a computational tool that can identify early risk factors for posttraumatic stress disorder within 10 days of a traumatic event, according to data.

"Our study shows that high-risk individuals who have experienced a traumatic event can be identified less than two weeks after they are first seen in the emergency department," Arieh Y. Shalev, MD, the Barbara Wilson Professor in the department of psychiatry at NYU Langone and a co-director of NYU's Steven and Alexandra Cohen Veterans Center, said in a press release. "Until now, we have not had a tool - in this case a computational algorithm - that can weigh the many different ways in which trauma occurs to individuals and provides a personalized risk estimate."
