ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01744054
First received: November 30, 2012
Last updated: May 2, 2014
Last verified: May 2014
  Purpose

To evaluate y90-PET/MRI (Positron Emission Tomography / Magnetic Resonance Imaging) for its potential on reporting 1) technical success of radioembolization and 2) presence of extrahepatic deposition of microspheres


Condition Intervention
Liver Neoplasms
Procedure: PET/MR

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Pilot Study of Microsphere Localization Using PET/MRI in Patients With Liver Disease Following Radioembolization

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate y90-PET/MRI for its potential on reporting presence of extrahepatic deposition of microspheres [ Time Frame: 1 day (one time event for patient) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An MR diagnostic radiologist and a nuclear medicine physician will evaluate the images and will determine any presence of extrahepatic deposition of microspheres.

  • Evaluate y90-PET/MRI for its potential on reporting technical success of radioembolization [ Time Frame: 1 day (one time event for patient) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An MR diagnostic radiologist and a nuclear medicine physician will evaluate the images and will determine whether technical success of the procedure can be determined. They will rate the images if they are 'adequate' to report on these two measures.
