Healthy Volunteers Needed for Hand and Heart Imaging Study


Diseases of the Musculoskeletal System

What is the purpose of this trial?

If you are a healthy individual who is at least 18 years of age and willing to undergo PET/CT imaging, you may be eligible to participate in a free and confidential study that is being conducted by Dr. Monique Hinchcliff and Dr. Edward Miller. The purpose of this study is to develop tools to quantify heart and hand microvascular (small vessel) disease in patients with systemic sclerosis to better understand disease progression. Study procedures include an EndoPAT assessment to measure finger blood pressure, and PET/CT testing, which is a heart scan currently used to measure disease in the blood vessels of the heart.

Participants will be compensated $200 for their time.
