PET Scan and CT Scan in Evaluating Response in Patients Undergoing Radiofrequency Ablation for Lung Metastases

2014-08-27 03:42:19 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Radiofrequency ablation uses a high-frequency, electric current to kill tumor cells. Diagnostic procedures, such as PET scan and CT scan, may help doctors measure the patient's response to treatment.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying PET scan and CT scan to see how well they work in evaluating response to treatment in patients undergoing radiofrequency ablation for lung metastases.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine the accuracy of positron emission tomography (PET) and CT scan in measuring response at 3 months after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in patients with lung metastases.

Secondary

- Determine the agreement between observers analyzing PET/CT scan results.

- Determine the outcome of these patients.

- Determine the false-positive rate and false-negative rate of PET/CT scan at 1 and 3 months in these patients.

- Determine the optimal time for obtaining a negative PET scan.

- Determine the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of PET/CT scan at 1 and 3 months.

- Determine the morbidity associated with RFA.

- Determine the disease-free survival after RFA and the factors predicting recurrent disease in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients undergo positron emission tomography (PET) and CT scan at baseline. Patients then undergo radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for lung metastases. PET/CT scan is repeated at 1 week, 1 month, and 3 months after RFA.

After completion of RFA, patients are followed by clinical examination and conventional scanning at 6, 9, and 12 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 80 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.

An imaging technique that combines a POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) scanner and a CT X RAY scanner. This establishes a precise anatomic localization in the same session.

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.

Tomography using radioactive emissions from injected RADIONUCLIDES and computer ALGORITHMS to reconstruct an image.
