Women diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis needed for 2-hour brain imaging study

The Neuroinflammation, Pain & Fatigue Lab is looking for women ages 18-65 diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for a 2-hour brain imaging study. The study investigates whether patients with RA have increased brain temperature compared to healthy people. We are looking for adults who are receiving treatment but are experiencing continued symptoms related to fatigue. We will obtain magnetic resonance images (MRI) of your brain for one hour. The brain scans are non-invasive and do not involve exposure to radiation or injection of contrast agents. There will also be questionnaires and a short physical exam. You will be paid $150 for completing the session. If interested, please contact Joanne Lin at 205-530-8004, or jclin@uab.edu to see if you are eligible.
