|Title||Photoacoustic imaging of the swallowing process|
|Description||We are looking for healthy volunteers for a study to see how well a non-invasive imaging technique allows researchers to see inside the human body. In this study, we want to see whether the this imaging technique can be used for a swallowing assessment. The technique combines light and sound to create an image. |
You will be asked to be in the study for 1 visit lasting about 30 minutes. You will ingest common foods/liquids, such as chocolate or green tea. You will then have a painless picture of your neck taken by an ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging machine. Study visit takes place at UB's North Campus.
Participants may be compensated.
