Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Development of a data repository for clinical outcome measures by conducting a medical record review at baseline, during routine follow-up after image-guided therapy, and then annually thereafter [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Development of a data repository for health-related quality of life outcome measures by administering the Medical Outcomes Study Short Form questionnaire at baseline, during routine follow-up after image-guided therapy, and then annually thereafter [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: October 2003
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Develop a data repository for clinical and health-related quality of life outcome measures in patients with hepatic malignancies treated with image-guided therapies.

OUTLINE: This is a pilot, prospective, longitudinal study.

Patients complete a standard questionnaire assessing health-related quality of life at baseline, during routine follow-up care after image-guided therapy, and then annually thereafter. Health and disease status and the development of other illnesses are assessed by medical record review.
