Assessment of Safety and Feasibility of Preoperative and Intraoperative Image-Guided Resection of Gliomas and Tumor Region-Specific Biomarker Correlation

Brief Summary

      This study evaluates the use of specialized magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques
      including magnetic resonance (MR) perfusion and 2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG) spectroscopy in the
      surgical treatment of gliomas. Participants will undergo an MR perfusion scan or 2-HG
      spectroscopy prior to surgery and intra-operatively.

Study Type


Primary Outcome

Intraoperative Imaging Completion


Brain Tumor Adult


MR Perfusion Scan

Study Arms / Comparison Groups

 Group A (contrast enhancing tumor)
Description:  Group A patients will undergo standard tumor preoperative imaging and MR perfusion scan prior to surgical resection. Group A patients will undergo standard intraoperative imaging along with MR perfusion scan during surgical resection.
