PET Imaging Study for Young Adults with ASD
Child Development & Autism
What is the purpose of this trial?
This study is designed to look at brain activity using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) in adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). PET imaging will be used to measure specific molecules in the brain and to measure synaptic connectivity. The study will take place across two or three separate visits (one or two PET scans). The first day will consist of a brief physical exam and a 30-minute magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Up to two PET scans can be completed on a single day or different days depending on preference. Participants will be compensated $100 for the first day and up to $450 for both PET scans. Reasonable travel costs will be reimbursed.
