This study aims to learn how to improve MRIs (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) that do not require the patient to be injected with a contrast dye. Researchers expect to learn how to better find and describe tumors in patients with prostate cancer. Participants have a whole body research MRI scan within 90 days of a standard-of-care imaging procedure. The research study will collect copies of those scans to compare to the research scans as part of the study analysis. Patients ...
Fractionated radiotherapy induces an observable change in the proliferative activity as assessed by pre-treatment and early-treatment 18F-FLT PET imaging. This study is designed to investigate 18F-FLT as a PET imaging agent for predicting treatment effectiveness in several tumors and will serve as a pilot study to a planned PO1 submission

The overall goal of the study is to evaluate how research participants in Parkinson Disease studies that include brain imaging with a dopamine transporter ligand choose to receive the imaging data and what is the impact of the imaging data information on the management of their symptoms.
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate MR imaging in subjects receiving doxorubicin chemotherapy to see if MR can detect heart damage as well as or better than MUGA scans. This research study is expected to enroll approximately 10 subjects over 12 months at the University of Miami / Miller School of Medicine.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if an imaging device called the Laser Optoacoustic and Ultrasonic Imaging System Assembly (LOUISA-3D) is effective in detecting and monitoring changes in breast tumors.
This research is aimed at finding out what may influence the decision of patients to participate in trials involving imaging so that the investigators may improve our future studies so they are more patient focused and acceptable in regards to scan schedules.
The purpose of this study is to compare whole body magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, whole body positron emission tomography (PET)/MR imaging, and (if available) PET/Computed Tomography (CT) imaging for the diagnosis of tumors in children and young adults. Sensitivities, specificities and diagnostic accuracies of the different imaging modalities will be compared for significant differences.
The purpose of this clinical research is to compare new methods of identifying the locations of tumours to standard CT imaging. Analysis of the tissue removed during surgery (pathology) will be used to determine which method is more accurate. Accurately identifying the locations of tumours is especially important for radiation therapy, where the radiation needs to cover the entire tumour while minimizing the amount normal tissue that is exposed to radiation. The new method uses...
The goal of this clinical research study is to compare 2 different types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Researchers will compare diffusion-weighted imaging (a method to show how water moves in a certain area) with standard-of-care imaging to learn which method is better to check the status of prostate cancer.
The goal of this clinical research study is to evaluate fluorescence imaging, widefield fluorescence imaging, point spectroscopy imaging methods, and or/ oral brush cytology that may help doctors monitor patients at an increased risk of developing an oral cancer, including those with pre-cancerous lesions in the mouth.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if new types of imaging devices can help doctors decide if a lesion in the mouth is pre-cancerous or cancerous.
The research is being conducted to develop new imaging methods that are sufficiently sensitive to allow for early diagnosis of BOS, a chronic allograft rejection affecting 50-60% of lung transplanted recipients who survive 5 years after transplant. Although lung transplantation has evolved into an effective therapeutic option for a large number of pediatric patients with end-stage pulmonary disease, long-term survival after lung transplantation is far worse than after the trans...
This study assesses dopamine transporter density using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) brain imaging with an investigational radiopharmaceutical, [123I]ß-CIT, in research participants with Parkinson's disease.
This research study can help understand how cardiac changes may occur with radiation therapy to the heart based off measurements obtained through biomarkers and cardiac imaging. Researchers plan to perform cardiac imaging and biomarkers for any cardiac injury. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) provides the ability to quantitatively measure cardiac function and injury. The cardiac biomarkers that will be tested are effective in the diagnosis, risk-stratification, and mon...
The purpose of this research is to develop non-invasive imaging modalities for assessment of skin. This is a pilot study which will use multiple imaging modalities to collect information on normal and lesional skin. The researchers understand that the purpose of this study is not to evaluate any particular treatment and an investigation of a new therapeutic intervention would require an additional protocol. Skin conditions to be studies include vascular lesions, pigmentary d...
Patients will be imaged with MRE at the time of the RT planning MRI, prior to the induction of RT and immunotherapy. Research imaging will be in addition to standard imaging studies performed at time points consistent with the standard of care (at the time of the RT planning MRI and the first clinical follow-up). An additional MRE exam will be performed at the end of treatment outside the standard of care imaging.
This research study will evaluate how Near Infrared Fluorescence imaging (NIFI) with indocyanine green (ICG) contrast dye can assist in the identification and diagnosis of lung nodules during surgery. NIFI is an intraoperative imaging technology that utilizes a coupled camera/fluorophore (ICG) system to fluoresce tissues of interest. Intravenous ICG is a fluorophore with a long-standing high safety profile.
This research study is evaluating the use of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) as a method of detecting early signs of damage to the heart that can be associated with adjuvant therapy of anthracycline (doxorubicin)-based combination chemotherapy followed by treatment with herceptin (trastuzumab for the treatment of (HER+) breast cancer.

The goal of this research project is to develop a new system that uses lasers to provide 3-dimensional (3-D) images of the cervical spine (the seven spinal bones in the neck) in a moving person. Doctors and researchers could use this system to examine people with spinal disorders and to learn more about how the spine works. The laser technique would be better than existing imaging methods because it would provide 3-D views of the cervical spine and would not expose patients to ...
Magnetic resonance is an imaging technique that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create images of the body. The technology used in magnetic resonance imaging continues to improve. Advancements in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) requires researchers to study new techniques in normal volunteers in order to understand how to use them in patients with diseases. In this study researchers plan to do a variety of diagnostic tests including magnetic resonance imaging o...
Hypoxia is a key factor in malignant progression of a neoplasm. It is our aim to explore the basis for quantitative in vivo tumor imaging by Cu-61 diacetyl-bis(N4-methylthiosemicarbazone)PET imaging as a surrogate of tissue hypoxia. We hypothesize that the hypoxia levels are predictive of the tumor response to therapy. Patients will have 2 CU-ATSM PET scans done and the goal is to show spatially stable tracer distributions that correlate with tumor hypoxia. This study will ser...
Multispectral imaging represents an exciting new field of investigation in endoscopic research. Multispectral imaging uses a specialised camera to detect multiple colours, allowing us to build a rough spectrum from each point in our image. It is widely reported that these spectra are different for different tissue types, but this is difficult to study ex vivo since de-oxygenation of the blood and decay of the tissue change these spectra considerably. The investigators ha...
