Magnetic Resonance Study of Liver in Chemotherapy
Each patient will have 4 MR exams: prior to or within one week of the start of the
chemotherapy regimen, one after 6 weeks of chemotherapy, a third after completion of
chemotherapy (between 12 and 24 weeks post-initiation of chemotherapy) and a long term
followup study at least 4 months after the completion of chemotherapy. Normal volunteers
will be recruited and studied by MR for comparison to patient data.
Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Prospective
To determine whether magnetic resonance techniques can detect changes in normal liver morphology and metabolism caused by chemotherapy in patients with colorectal cancer.
