MRI following Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Brain Metastases

What is the Purpose of this Study?

If you choose to join this study, you will:
-Have more images taken about 1 hour after your regular MRI
-Let the study team to collect information from your medical record for 2 years
What is the Condition Being Studied?
Brain Metastases

Who Can Participate in this Study?

-Adults, 18 or older

-Have any metastatic solid tumor except small cell lung cancer or myeloma

-Have at least 1 brain metastasis previously treated with Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) with progression at the treated site(s)

-Able to have Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy (LITT)

*If you had whole brain radiotherapy before, that is allowed but not required
