Eligibility Criteria

Age < 65 · All Participants · 5 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
Patients with a radiographically diagnosed tumor that is High Grade Glioma (WHO grade 3-4) may enroll prior to pathology confirmation, but would be removed from study if pathology did not confirm the diagnosis of High Grade Glioma.
The tumor is located in the upper part of the brain.
The text recommends that the person receive radiation therapy, which is a definitive treatment.
Capable of acquiring MRI scans.
This trial is open to males and females of all races and ethnic groups.
