Resting-State Functional MRI in Glioma Patients Before and After Surgery

2019-06-02 23:09:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This clinical trial studies how well resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) MRI performed before and after surgery works in measuring the effects on language in patients with glioma. Mapping language function before brain tumor resection is crucial for preventing post-surgical deficits and maximizing restoration of language function following surgery. Additional imaging, such as resting-state functional MRI and CVR MRI, may help measure the language network in the brain before surgery and any effects on language function after surgery.

Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To develop a reliable platform for preoperative mapping of language networks using resting-state-functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs)-fMRI in glioma patients.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To explore the reorganizations of resting-state functional connectivity (FC) and their relation to neuropsychological outcomes in glioma patients after surgery.

OUTLINE:

Patients undergo standard of care functional (f)MRI, CVR MRI over 3 minutes, and rs-fMRI over 6 minutes 1 month before and within 6 weeks after standard of care surgery.

After completion of study, patients are followed up at 4-6 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
