Investigating the Feasibility of Using Rapid Cine-MRI for Monitoring Moving and Deforming Tumors
Rapid MRI scans from Stage I-IV non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients will be
acquired. MR acquisition will be performed without extrinsically administered contrast,
using a balanced turbo field echo (TFE) sequence and commercially available coils.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label
To measure time series of MRI imaging by the b-SSFP sequence.
To use fast acquisition sequences to obtain 2D and 3D cine MR images of moving and deforming lung tumors. The signal to noise ration (SNR) and spatiotemporal resolution of imaging sequences will be optimized into a format potentially useful for radiotherapy guidance.
