Trial Information

Quantitative DCE-MRI as a Predictor of Therapeutic Response in Acute Leukemia

Inclusion Criteria:

- Newly diagnosed or relapsed AML patients, who are scheduled to receive standard
induction therapy.

- Age > 8 years and requiring no sedation.

- Patients must not be pregnant

- Women of childbearing potential must have negative serum pregnancy test performed
within 7-days prior to start of study

- The subject or subject's legal guardian has the ability to understand and the
willingness to sign a written informed consent and/or assent document. A signed
study-specific informed consent and/or assent must be obtained prior to any study
specific procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients who would be normally excluded from undergoing an MRI examination - patients
with a pacemaker, aneurysm clip or any other condition that would warrant avoidance
of a strong magnetic field.

- Patients who have known or suspected allergy to gadolinium-based contrast agent.

- Severe claustrophobia precluding subject from undergoing a MRI

- Patients with acute or chronic kidney dysfunction (estimated Glomerular Filtration
Rate (eGFR) < 30ml/min/1.73 m2 as calculated using the MDRD Equation)

- Pregnant women are excluded from this study because of possible risk to the fetus.
