Trial ID or NCT#





This pilot early phase I trial studies how well ferumoxytol-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) correlates with inflammatory (macrophage) responses in pediatric patients with malignant brain tumors. If there is good correlation, ferumoxytol-enhanced MRI can serve as a noninvasive imaging biomarker of inflammation.

Official Title

MR Imaging of Inflammatory Responses in the Central Nervous System With Ferumoxytol-Enhanced MRI (Pediatric Brain Tumor Protocol)
