What we are studying
The purpose of this study is to understand how nicotine is absorbed in your lungs and eventually reaches your brain after you inhale the vapor from e-cigarettes.
This study involves using PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scanning to measure how
nicotine distributes in your body after you inhale e-cigarette vapor. A PET scan is a special kind of noninvasive imaging test which allows doctors and researchers to see how certain tissues and organs within the body are functioning. A PET scan uses radiation to produce images of the body. Additionally, CT (computerized tomography) scans will be conducted to create images of your body.
Parking validation will be provided for the study visit. You will receive a compensation of $100 per a scanning session
