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