Healthy research participants wanted for lung imaging study

Are you interested in participating in research to help us better understand lung disease? Johns Hopkins is recruiting healthy volunteers (18-60 years old) without any known lung diseases for an imaging study that requires 5 visits over 1 month to our research center.

Researchers are looking to get high quality data using a new method of inhalation in a procedure called mucociliary clearance scan (MCC). Participants will have mucociliary clearance scans (MCC scan)—a test during which you inhale a very small amount of radioactive material while a camera images your lungs as you breathe. Participants will receive up to $570 for completing all study visits. Imaging visits may last up to 8 hours.

Protocol: Multisite Qualification Studies Using the Slow Inhalation, Large Particle (SILP) Mucociliary Clearance Measurement Method
