Imaging pancreatic beta-cells with PET neuroimaging agent 11C-PHNO
- Study HIC#:2000021287
- Last Updated:11/11/2022
We are conducting a PET imaging study to develop a way to measure the number of insulin secreting cells in the pancreas. This study is intended for people diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes who are otherwise in good physical health and well controlled on insulin. The study requires 2-3 visits over several weeks.
