• In Vivo Kinematics of the Cervical Spine in Asymptomatic Patients and Patients with Spondylosis
Healthy Volunteers Needed for a Research Study of Cervical Spine Motion
Healthy volunteers with age between 30 and 60 are needed for a research study investigating cervical spine movement. Subjects must have no history of spine injury or chronic neck pain. This investigation will require two sessions. During the first session, the subject will undergo a standard MRI. This session will last approximately 30 minutes. The second session will involve fluoroscopic imaging of the neck as the subject moves his head in the fashion of normal daily activities. We will not ask subjects to do anything that causes pain or puts them at risk for injury. The second session will require approximately 30 minutes. There will be a $100 compensation for participation.
