Feasibility Study for Imaging of Peripheral Tumors With a High-Resolution PET Imaging System
If you agree to take part in this study, right after your already-scheduled routine PET/CT
scan is complete, a study staff member will take you to a separate imaging room located in
the same clinic area where your routine PET/CT scan was just performed.
You will then sit in a chair as a study staff member positions the PEMFlex Solo II on either
side of the area being checked for cancer. It will take about 20 minutes to set up the
PEMFlex Solo II and take the PET scan images.
Length of Study:
After the PET scan images have been taken using the PEMFlex Solo II, your participation in
this study will be over.
This is an investigational study. The PEMFlex Solo II is commercially available and
designed for PET scan imaging of the breast. The use of the PEMFlex Solo II for imaging
other parts of the body is investigational.
Up to 20 patients will take part in this study. All will be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Screening
Number of peripheral tumor lesions identified in standard PET/CT imaging also identifiable in PEM images.
