Preliminary questions [13639]

13816 there is some evidence that therapeutic radiation to the head or neck may be a factor in the development or worsening of the condition under consideration.

11429 the veteran has undergone a course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck at some time.

11431 the veteran underwent a course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck for treatment of an illness or injury which is identifiable.

13719the veteran has established the causal connection between the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck and VEA service for carotid arterial disease.

13726

the therapeutic radiation to the head or neck was given for treatment of the identified illness or injury before the clinical onset of carotid arterial disease.

13720the veteran has established the causal connection between the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck and VEA service for the clinical onset of carotid arterial disease.

13722the veteran has established the causal connection between the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck and operational service for the clinical onset of carotid arterial disease.

or

13723the veteran has established the causal connection between the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck and eligible service for the clinical onset of carotid arterial disease.

or

7334

the clinical onset of the condition under consideration occurred after the end of the veteran's last period of VEA service.

7335

the condition under consideration permanently worsened.

13727

the therapeutic radiation to the head or neck was given for treatment of the identified illness or injury before the clinical worsening of carotid arterial disease.

13725the veteran has established the causal connection between the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck and eligible service for the clinical worsening of carotid arterial disease.

Clinical onset and operational service [13722]

11438the identified illness or injury for which the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck was undergone is causally related to operational service.

Clinical onset and eligible service [13723]

11439the identified illness or injury for which the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck was undergone is causally related to eligible service.

Clinical worsening and operational service [13724]

11438the identified illness or injury for which the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck was undergone is causally related to operational service.

13730

the clinical onset of carotid arterial disease occurred prior to that part of operational service to which the identified illness or injury for which the therapeutic radiation to the head or neck was given is causally related.

Clinical worsening and eligible service [13725]

11439the identified illness or injury for which the course of therapeutic radiation to the head or neck was undergone is causally related to eligible service.

13731

the clinical onset of carotid arterial disease occurred prior to that part of eligible service to which the identified illness or injury for which the therapeutic radiation to the head or neck was given is causally related.
