The purpose of this research study is to see if 7Telsa MRI can help health care providers better visualize micrometastatic (really small) tumors in your brain. This study also seeks to better understand how patients’ coping strategies can impact their experience with cancer, acceptance of their diagnosis, and their quality of life. You will be asked to do the following for research purposes: have a 7Telsa MRI and complete quality of life questionnaires once a month for 4 months. The study will continue to follow your health for up to 1 year via review of your medical records.
This study will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of an investigational product, IV ganaxolone, to treat subjects with status epilepticus.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. In the US alone, there are 2.8 million emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths each year, and more than 5.3 million Americans are currently living with a TBI-related disability. Approximately 90% of these injuries are considered ‘mild’ TBI, or concussion. Research is needed to better understand the impacts of traumatic brain injury and ultimately develop new treatments. This research study seeks volunteers with no history of brain injury to serve as comparisons to those with TBI. Using non-invasive, ultra-high field (7 Tesla) MRI technology will allow researchers to see features of the brain that will help improve traumatic brain injury treatment.
