Mri Cerebral Blood Flow Co2 Inhalation Acetazolamide Perfusion Healthy Volunteer

Description

Advances in MR perfusion imaging have provided clinical researchers with the opportunity to quantitate regional increases in cerebral blood flow. The purpose of this study is to acquire the technical experience required to perform MR perfusion imaging studies of the hypercapnic cerebral blood flow response. Cerebral blood flow will be increased by inhalation of carbogen (an air mixture containing 5% CO2) or IV injection of the carbonic anhydrase inhibitor acetazolamide. The technical experience obtained in this study will be used to design a study of the pharmacological and physiological me...

Eligibility criteria

  • INCLUSION CRITERIA:
  • Any normal volunteer above the age of 18 years old who is capable of giving informed consent.
  • EXCLUSION CRITERIA:
  • Subjects will be excluded if they have contraindications to MR scanning, such as the following: aneurism clip, implanted neural stimulator, implanted cardiac pacemaker or autodefibrillator, chochlear implant, ocular foreign body (e.g., metal shavings), or insulin pump. Also, subjects will be excluded if they have panic disorder or migrane (because of possible complications with CO2 inhilation), or if they have cirrhosis, are on high dose aspirin therapy, or have an allergy to acetazolamide injection). Subjects will be excluded if they have allergies to sulfonamide drugs or if they have a chronic respiratory illness.
