  Show Detailed Description


Ages Eligible for Study:   8 Years to 30 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

Inclusion criteria will comprise:

  • An age of 8-30 years
  • Suspected or confirmed diagnosis of a bone sarcoma or osteomyelitis.

The investigators do not include younger patients (age less than 8 yrs) in order to exclude need of sedation. There will be no gender/race-ethnic restrictions

In this pediatric & adult study, the participant or parent/guardian is consented, and the patient when a minor is given an assent form and involved in the discussion as appropriate.

Exclusion Criteria:

Exclusion criteria will comprise:

  • Contraindication to MRI
  • Presence of metal implants
  • Need for sedation or anesthesia
  • Claustrophobia
  • Hemosiderosis/hemochromatosis

There will be no restrictions regarding use of other Investigational Agents.

Patients with evidence of iron overload, hemosiderosis/hemochromatosis will be excluded.

History of allergic reactions to similar compounds will be obtained and patients with positive history of allergic reactions will be excluded from the study.

Pregnancy or nursing patients will be excluded from the study. A pregnancy test will be done prior to the MR examination for postmenarchal teenage girls, in whom pregnancy may be possible. Only patients with a negative pregnancy test will be included in the study.
