NY- PET Scans for Healthy & Patient Volunteers

KEYWORDS: Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), brain imaging, non invasive clinical research, psychological research, medical research, healthy volunteers, PTSD volunteers, Depression volunteers, Alcohol Dependence volunteers, Alcoholism, paid volunteers

What is PET?
PET (Positron Emission Tomography) is a non-invasive diagnostic scanning technique that provides researchers and clinicians with visual images of organ function. PET scans can detect biochemical changes in body tissues before structural damage occurs from disease. This information allows clinicians to be proactive in their treatments and enables researchers to detect early biomarkers of disease that can aid diagnosis and advance drug development.

We are currently utilizing PET to study brain functioning in the following study populations:

Healthy Controls: male or female subjects between 18-55 years of age, without a history of any type of neurological illness or injury or any current or prior mental health or substance use disorder.

PTSD: male or female subjects, ages 18-55, who are suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Individuals who have had reactions to major traumatic life events are also encouraged to participate.

Depression: male or female subjects, ages 18-55, who are suffering from depression.
Aim of Study: Alcohol Dependence: male or female subjects between 18-55 years of age, suffering from alcohol dependence or in partial remission. Subjects may participate in an inpatient or outpatient setting.
Aim of Study Aim of the studies: to examine the association between disorders such as PTSD, depression, and alcohol dependence, and brain function using MRI and PET.
Inclusion Criteria : We are looking for male or female volunteers, ages 18-55, who are healthy or suffering from depression, PTSD, or alcohol dependence. In addition, participants must have a willingness to participate in medical evaluations, and in imaging studies including 1 PET scan and 1 MRI scan.
Exclusion Criteria : Individuals on any medication or have medical/neurological illnesses, females who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Duration : Duration 2-3 days, which include one day of screening and evaluation, one to two days for the MRI scan and PET scan.
Reimbursement : Completion of one-day screening and interview $75 Completion of MRI scan $100 Completion of PET scan $600
Other Info : Volunteers may participate in up to 3 PET studies and would be compensated $775 per study. Other Info The studies will consist of one screening session followed by one magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan and up to 3 positron emission tomography (PET) studies to measure brain function. Participation in the study will last approximately 2-3 days, depending on availability and scheduling.
