The majority of recruited patients will be treated on protocol HUM00004531 "A Multi-Institutional Phase II Study of Neoadjuvant Gemcitabine and Oxaliplatin with Radiation Therapy in Patients with Pancreatic Cancer".
- Diffusion MRI [ Time Frame: 5 years ]The goal is to develop a functional imaging method that would be a better predictor of pathological response than the current CT standard. Diffusion MRI has the potential to measure early cellular changes that occur in response to successful therapies, such as chemoradiation, and has been demonstrated to be an early predictor not only of therapeutic response, but also of overall survival for other malignancies.
- Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]Demonstrate that the distribution of Apparent Diffusion Coefficient in pancreatic tumors, as measured by diffusion MRI, changes in response to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, and characterize the differences in the distributions between histopathologic responders and non-responders.
