Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Persistent Disease within 6 months of CRT [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Persistent Disease within 2 years of CRT [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: April 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Imaging Drug: 99mTc-EC-DG
99mTc-EC-DG will be used before the SPECT/CT scans throughout the study to determine the its effectiveness. 20 mCi of 99mtc-EC-DG will be administered through a vein through a catheter. This will be done before the SPECT/CT scan at 4 weeks and 10 weeks.
