Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for Assessing Spinal Metastases
What is the Purpose of this Study?
If you choose to join this study, you will have a MRI scan.
What is the Condition Being Studied?
Cancer that has spread to the spine
Who Can Participate in this Study?
- Adults diagnosed with spinal metastases in the C1 to S5 area
- Planning to be treated with Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT); prior radiation therapy to the spine is allowed
- Have pain score of at least 1 (on a scale from 1-10)
- Not pregnant
What is Involved?
We are doing this study to learn if a MRI can find changes in the spinal cord that relate to pain.
