Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Learning about the long-term effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy on brain function may help doctors plan cancer treatments.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is looking at the neurological effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy in patients with colon cancer.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Cognitive/Functional Effects Colorectal Cancer Long-term Effects Secondary to Cancer Therapy in Adults Procedure: cognitive assessment Procedure: magnetic resonance imaging Procedure: management of therapy complications

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • Identify the nature and long-term ramifications of CNS injury as a result of cancer treatment in patients with colon cancer.

Secondary

  • Analyze differences in cognitive measures and MRI data in these patients.
  • Correlate MRI measures with cognitive performance in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients undergo cognitive performance assessment and MRI.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 42 patients will be accrued for this study.
