Dose-varied Evaluation of Ablavar-enhanced MR Angiography of the Central Veins of the Chest in Healthy Participants

2014-08-27 04:00:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to assess the image quality of Ablavar-enhanced MR angiography of the central veins of the chest, and to determine whether dose reduction can be performed while maintaining image quality. This will be a prospective randomized study, in which healthy volunteers will be recruited to undergo a central veins magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA). They will receive either the FDA-approved dose or a lower dose of Ablavar. Quantitative and qualitative analysis will be performed on the images.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.

Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.

Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.

Dietary patterns which have been found to be important in reducing disease risk.
