OPAL R01 (Chronic Pain Imaging Study) - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to compare activity in the brains of female adults who have chronic pain and/or use opioids to the brain activity of healthy female adults who are pain-free. We hope this study can help us develop new and targeted treatments for adults with chronic pain and alternatives to opioid therapy.

What is the Condition Being Studied?

Chronic Pain & Healthy Volunteers

Who Can Participate in the Study?

Women ages 18+ who:
