Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
- - ≥ 18 years of age.
- - Diagnosis of meningioma based on pathology reports and suspected recurrence or residual disease based on standard-of-care MRI.
- - Additionally, patients with other somatostatin receptor 2 positive brain tumors, including esthesioneuroblastoma, hemangioblastoma, medulloblastoma, paraganglioma, pituitary adenoma, and SSTR-positive systemic cancers metastatic to the brain will be considered for the purposes of obtaining feasibility data.
- - As the investigator's institution, PET/MRI scanner utilizes a 3 Tesla (T) magnet, patients who may be ineligible to undergo 3T MRI but may undergo 1.5 Tesla (T) MRI, will undergo a 1.5T MRI as per clinical standard-of-care and a Ga68-DOTATATE PET/CT with the PET portion to be fused with the 1.5T MRI utilizing fusion software.
- - Contraindications to gadolinium-based contrast agent.
- - History of allergic reaction to Gallium-68-DOTATATE.
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

To date, the utility of Ga-68-DOTATATE PET/MRI in meningioma has not been explored. Investigators have over the past 3 months been able to accrue the largest case series of presently 12 patients in whom Ga-68 DOTATATE PET/MRI demonstrated utility in the assessment of meningioma, including assessment for postsurgical/postradiation recurrence, detection of additional lesions not visualized on MRI alone, and evaluation of osseous invasion. Based on this initial experience, investigators intend to study the impact of Ga-68-DOTATATE PET/MRI in the assessment of the extent of residual tumor in patients status post meningioma resection, specifically in patients in whom tumor location limits resectability, patients with WHO grade II/III disease, and patients with history of SRS who develop postradiation change.
Cohort of 30 subjects with meningioma.
Cohort of 60 subjects with non-meningioma: (esthesioneuroblastoma, hemangioblastoma, medulloblastoma, paraganglioma, pituitary adenoma and SSTR-positive tumors metastatic to the brain)
Diagnostic Test: - Ga68-DOTATATE-PET/MRI
In patients with meningioma who are undergoing surgical planning, subjects will undergo a PET scan at the time of their pretreatment or preoperative standard of care MRI exam, prior to surgery performed for research purposes. Instead of the standard of care MRI exam, subjects will undergo a dedicated hybrid Gallium-68-DOTATATE PET/MRI.There will be up to two follow-up with Ga68-DOTATATE PET/MRI scans performed as standard of care. In patients with SSTR-positive CNS tumors that are non-meningioma, MRI is often performed to assess extent of disease. Subjects may be asked to undergo a PET scan for research purposes at the time of their standard of care MRI. Instead of the standard of care MRI exam, they may be asked to undergo a dedicated hybrid Gallium-68-DOTATATE PET/MRI.
