Healthy Volunteer

Individuals who do not have one of the conditions we study can still help by volunteering as control subjects. Control participants allow us to evaluate the effects of an intervention in the general population.

  • Assessing Spinal Cord Structure Changes Using Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Patients With Incomplete Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury

    The purpose of this study is to use a special MRI technology to assess changes in nerve fibers of the spinal cord in acute incomplete spinal cord injury patients (SCI patients who still have some ability to move their limbs) and in healthy control subjects.
