Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 18F-FDOPA PET activity, MRI contrast enhancement, and high- or low-grade glioma biopsies [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Determine correlation between 18F-FDOPA PET activity, MRI contrast enhancement, and high- or low-grade glioma biopsies.

  • 18F- FDOPA-PET metabolic imaging information [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Compare radiotherapy target volume delineation with and without 18F- FDOPA-PET metabolic imaging information to determine role of metabolic imaging in radiotherapy treatment planning.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Concordance of 18F-FDOPA PET and 11C-choline activity, MRI contrast enhancement, and high- or low-grade glioma biopsies [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Determine correlation between concordance of 18F-FDOPA PET and 11C-choline activity, MRI contrast enhancement, and high- or low-grade glioma biopsies and patient outcomes including overall survival and progression free survival.

  • With and without 18F- FDOPA PET, 11C-choline PET metabolic imaging information [ Time Frame: 2 Years ]
    Compare radiotherapy target volume delineation with and without 18F- FDOPA PET, 11C-choline PET metabolic imaging information; pMRI and DTI advanced MR imaging, to determine role in radiotherapy treatment planning.

  • 18F-FDOPA PET activity, 11C-choline PET activity, MRI contrast enhancement, pMRI, and DTI, with high- or low-grade glioma biopsies [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Determine correlation between 18F-FDOPA PET activity, 11C-choline PET activity, MRI contrast enhancement, pMRI, and DTI, with high- or low-grade glioma biopsies.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine correlation between 18F-FDOPA PET activity, MRI contrast enhancement, and high- or low-grade glioma biopsies.

II. To compare radiotherapy target volume delineation with and without 18F- FDOPA-PET metabolic imaging information to determine role of metabolic imaging in radiotherapy treatment planning.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine correlation between concordance of 18F-FDOPA PET activity, MRI contrast enhancement, and high- or low-grade glioma biopsies and patient outcomes including overall survival and progression free survival.

OUTLINE:

Beginning at no more than 1 week before biopsy and resection, patients undergo fluorine F 18 fluorodopa-labeled PET/CT scan and pre-operative MRI. Patients then undergo stereotactic craniotomy. Some patients may also undergo radiation therapy.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every year for 5 years.
