How does air move in the lungs?
Regulatory Advancement of HXe as a Diagnostic MRI Contrast Agent: A Phase 2 Clinical Trial
Radiology Research seeks healthy volunteers OR those with asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and/or those that smoke or have received radiation therapy treatment (ages 12-85) for a research study. The purpose of the study is to look at how the air moves in your lungs using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with xenon and/or helium gas. Study includes spirometry, 6-minute-walk test, electrocardiogram, physical exam, nuclear medicine ventilation scan, chest CT and finger stick depending on your qualifications. Study requires 1-3 visits each lasting about 2-3 hours. Study-related spirometry, 6 minute walk test, ECG, physical exam, bronchodilator, nuclear ventilation scan, chest CT, finger stick, and MRI with xenon and/or helium provided free of charge. Compensation for study completion is based on the procedures completed. Minimum compensation is $100.00.
