VA Research has helped many people, not just veterans. Below are some of the great things created at VA.
VA developed the CAT Scan (pictures of inside the body). Doctors all over the world use CAT Scans to help them find out what is wrong with their patients.
VA also invented the cardiac pacemaker. This is a device that helps the heart to beat right.
VA also did the first liver transplant.
VA created the “Seattle Foot” to give veterans whose feet were badly hurt the ability to run and jump.
