About

The purpose of this study is to test the accuracy of using an imaging technique called breath-holding functional magnetic resonance imaging (BH fMRI) in addition to the standard imaging test described above. This study will allow the researchers to find out whether using BH fMRI in combination with the standard approach is the same as, better, or worse than the standard approach used alone.

Inclusion criteria

Health Volunteers

  • Volunteers between the ages of 18 and 80 years
  • Volunteers must be able to perform the language paradigms on cue while inside the scanner Patients
  • Patients between the ages of 18 and 80 years
  • Patients must be able to perform the language paradigms on cue while inside the scanner
  • Women of child bearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test prior to the study intervention (Serum or Urine)
  • Patients diagnosed with primary glial neoplasm, meningioma and metastasis (from prior histology) or must be suspected to have primary glial neoplasm, meningioma and metastasis on imaging (to be confirmed by post-operative histology).
  • Patient"s location of the tumor must involve the expected location of Broca"s area (left pars opercularis and/or pars triangularis), or the expected location of the primary motor area (the pre-central gyrus). This determination will be made on the basis of a pre-operative MRI by a fellowship-trained Neuroradiologist

Exclusion criteria

Healthy Volunteers

Volunteers who are unable to comply or complete MRI exams as per the site"s standards. (e.g.: claustrophobia, high levels of anxiety, pacemaker etc.)

o MSK site only - see Appendix 2

  • Volunteers who are unable to perform the language paradigms on cue while inside the scanner (due to weakness, deafness, inability to understand or follow instructions etc.)
  • Volunteers with a history of neurological disorders, psychiatric disorders or cancer Female volunteers who are pregnant or nursing.
  • Volunteers who have MRI safe pacemakers.
  • Volunteers from the vulnerable population, as defined by 45 CFR 46
  • Volunteers who are unable to perform the breath hold task during practice sessions Patients

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)
Experimental group
Description:
The interventions for this study are non-invasive. For patients, routine pre-operative MRI that includes task based fMRI and perfusion data acquisition will be performed on a 3T scanner. Patients who participate in this study, will have approximately 5 minutes added to their scan time for the below described breath holding fMRI (BH fMRI) paradigm, which will be done for research purposes. For healthy volunteers, participation will involve having a high resolution anatomical MRI done with the same paradigms which patients will have, listed below. the total scanner time will be approximately 25 minutes, and the scan will not be billed to the healthy volunteer.
