Low-Intensity Focused Ultrasound and Pain Management Research
The Legon Lab at Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC is recruiting volunteers for a cutting-edge brain research study. If eligible, participants will take part in a multi-session study involving a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, a computed tomography (CT) scan, low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU), testing consisting of heating and cooling sensations on the skin, and questionnaires.
Primary goal: To investigate the effects of low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU), a non-invasive brain stimulation method, on pain management
Who is eligible?
- Healthy adults aged 18-65
- Availability to participate in Roanoke for a multi-session study
- Meets all MRI and CT safety qualifications
How much time will it take?
Each session will take about 2-2.5 hours for a total of about 11.5 hours. Additional optional sessions will be 2-2.5 hours, up to an 9 additional study hours.
How will I be compensated?
Participants will be compensated between $230 and $410 depending on study participation.
