Study Summary

This trial will use a PET scanner to test an improved method for differentiating tumor recurrence from radiation necrosis in glioblastoma patients. The new quantitative kinetic analytical methods using FDOPA in combination with FDG will provide crucial functional information to distinguish recurrent tumors from treatment-induced radiation changes in patients with treated brain neoplasms.

Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · All Participants · 7 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
This means that the person can stay in the same position for at least 60 minutes.
The subject was willing and able to comply with all scheduled visits and study procedures.
for grade III anaplastic astrocytoma MRI scans of the patient's brain showed signs of radiographic worsening shortly after radiation and temozolomide therapy had been completed for a grade III anaplastic astrocytoma.
If the patient is female, she must either be post-menopausal or surgically sterile.
