Brief Summary:
This research study is evaluating the investigational software for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems and techniques to process magnetic resonance (MR) images

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pediatric Low-grade Gliomas Other: Wave-CAIPI Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The purpose of the study is to develop new technologies for MRI systems. The new technologies should improve MRI capabilities in terms of how sensitive, specific, and efficient they are. The overall goal is to get better measurements of the brain tumor tissue(s).

In this research study, the investigators want to learn more about investigational software and about techniques to process MR images. The testing of investigational software will allow the investigators to improve the image quality. As part of the testing process, the investigators will collect more MR images of the brain, and improve current image reconstruction methods. This will allow a more precise analysis of MR images and potentially better assessment of the brain tumor tissue volume.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Primary Testing Group
  • This scan is in the same imaging session as the participant's scheduled clinical MRI and is no longer 15 minutes
  • Wave-CAIPI will be use to enable a 40-60 s acquisition per contrast at 0.9-mm isotropic resolution
  • Wave-CAIPI will be used to acquire a 4-echo GE-SE time-series at 1.5-mm isotropic resolution
Other: Wave-CAIPI
"wave-CAIPI" technology, a data acquisition / reconstruction scheme designed to optimally exploit available information in modern multi-channel receivers and in multi-contrast/time-series data for improved image encoding

Experimental: Software Testing Group
  • Participants will receive hour research-only scan
  • Wave-CAIPI will be use to enable a 40-60 s acquisition per contrast at 0.9-mm isotropic resolution
  • Wave-CAIPI will be used to acquire a 4-echo GE-SE time-series at 1.5-mm isotropic resolution
Other: Wave-CAIPI
"wave-CAIPI" technology, a data acquisition / reconstruction scheme designed to optimally exploit available information in modern multi-channel receivers and in multi-contrast/time-series data for improved image encoding




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Wave-CAIPI validation [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The outcome measure for this project will be that the rapid scan from Wave-CAIPI can provide equivalent diagnostic quality to that of standard clinical acquisitions which is performed at much slower speed. This will be assess using visual qualitative assessment by experienced radiologists on the project.
