PET/CT Evaluation of Primary and Metastatic Brain Tumors With a Novel Radioiodinated Phospholipid Ether Analogue I-NM404

Status: Completed
Location: See location...
Intervention Type: Drug
Study Type: Interventional
Study Phase: Not Applicable

The purpose of this study is to evaluate diagnostic imaging techniques using 124I-NM404 PET/CT in human brain tumors. This goal will be accomplished by quantifying tumor uptake and determining the optimal PET/CT protocol, comparing PET tumor uptake to MRI, and calculating tumor dosimetry. The long-term goals of this research are to improve the diagnosis and treatment of malignant brain tumors by using radioiodinated NM404
