Magnetic Resonance High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MR-HIFU) ablative therapy for children with recurrent or relapsed solid tumors.
Device: Magnetic Resonance High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
MR-High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is an ultrasound based technology which allows for non-invasive thermal ablation of tumors under the guidance of MR thermography.
- Toxicity [ Time Frame: 28 days following ablative therapy ]Toxicity will be evaluated using CTCAEv4. Adverse events will be summarized descriptively with tabulations of adverse event type, severity, and relationship to study treatment.
- Disease response [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]We will preliminarily define tumor response from MR-HIFU ablative therapy assessed according to a modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). We will also evaluate functional tumor response using FDG-PET post MR-HIFU ablative treatment for patients with PET avid target lesions.
- Patient reported outcomes and quality of life measurements [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]We will use a validated symptom distress scale and quality of life metrics pre- and post-therapy at scheduled intervals.
- Immune Markers [ Time Frame: Pre-treatment, 1 day post treatment, 7 days post treatment ]Changes in immune markers from baseline and post therapy will be evaluated.
