CBF and NCF Changes With Brain Radiation

Brief description of study

This study will be a dual-arm prospective longitudinal cohort study for patients with brain metastases, at least one of which is appropriate for radiotherapy, to explore brain and cognitive changes following SRS or WBRT and evaluate the feasibility of a novel MRI protocol to identify potential radiological biomarkers of NCF decline.

Patients diagnosed with brain mets will be assigned to either Arm A or Arm B, depending on their treatment plan. Patients in Arm A will be treated with SRS. Patients in Arm B will be treated with WBRT.

Patients' neurocognitive function will be assessed before their radiation treatment and followed up for 2 years post treatment.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03606421
