A pilot study to evaluate the safety of MRI compatible hardware for intraoperative MRI-based image guidance for spinal procedures
MD Anderson Study Status
This trial investigates the safety and accuracy of using 2 pieces of hardware (a clamp and a needle) that are able to be used with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during spinal surgery. During a standard spinal surgery, a computed tomography (CT) scan is used to help plan the placement of surgical instruments used during the procedure or for needle biopsies. Then, the patient is moved to the MRI. For this study, the patient is able to stay in place as the hardware used in this study is able to work with the MRI. Using MRI compatible hardware may allow for an extra degree of safety and facilitate better surgical workflow.
