IRB Number: AAAR0417
U.S. Govt. ID: NCT02978144

Additional Study Information: We are asking you to participate in a research study to determine if we can detect minor lung injury that we cannot currently measure with available tests. This injury can occur when somebody is smoking for a long time or when somebody has COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). We want to compare the results of people who have never smoked, people who are current smokers, and people who have known COPD. The procedures of the study include lung imaging (SPECT/CT), pulmonary function test (breathing test), and blood and urine samples. For each completed visit, we will compensate $250 allocated in a Visa gift card. If provided consent, we would like to repeat the study either one week or one year after enrollment. Therefore, there is a possibility of a second visit (one week or one year later) with a compensation for the second visit of $250 allocated in a Visa gift card.
