Advanced MRI Applications Development

Study Purpose

The goals of this study are to: 1. To improve upon and develop new innovative magnetic resonance imaging techniques that refine image quality and enhance performance. Improvements in these areas will have positive implications for medical diagnosis and treatment. 2. To correlate MRI images with underlying disease pathophysiology in order to ensure that imaging accurately reflects the disease process.

Phase

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
