68Ga-FAPi-46 PET/CT Scan in Imaging Patients With Sarcoma

About

Brief Summary

This early phase I trial studies an imaging technique called 68Ga-FAPi-46 PET/CT to determine where and to which degree the FAPI tracer (68Ga-FAPi-46) accumulates in normal and cancer tissues in patients with sarcoma. PET is an established imaging technique that utilizes small amounts of radioactivity attached to very minimal amounts of tracer, in the case of this research, 68Ga-FAPi. Because some cancers take up 68Ga-FAPi it can be seen with PET. CT utilizes x-rays that traverse body from the outside. CT images provide an exact outline of organs and potential inflammatory tissue where it occurs in patient's body.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who are scheduled to undergo surgical excision or biopsy of a suspected sarcoma primary, or a suspected recurrent or metastatic lesion.
  • Patients who are ≥ 18 years old at the time of the radiotracer administration.
  • Patients who can provide written informed consent.
  • Patients who are able to remain still for duration of imaging procedures (up to one hour for each).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient is pregnant or nursing.
  • Patients with any new cancer therapy between the baseline 18F-FDG PET/CT and the investigational FAPI PET/CT
  • Patient has underlying disease which, based on the judgment of the investigator, might interfere with the collection of high quality data.
