Brief Summary:
In this study, the researchers investigate the feasibility of using rapid cine MR imaging to provide both offline and online soft-tissue-based image guidance. Such images will provide a significantly more complete picture of the spatial and temporal changes in thoracic anatomy. This more complete information will lay the groundwork for better radiotherapy planning and dose delivery in the presence of respiratory motion.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Cancer Other: cine MRI Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Rapid MRI scans from Stage I-IV non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients will be acquired. MR acquisition will be performed without extrinsically administered contrast, using a balanced turbo field echo (TFE) sequence and commercially available coils.

Rapid Cine-MRI for Monitoring Moving and Deforming Tumors



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To measure time series of MRI imaging by the b-SSFP sequence. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    To use fast acquisition sequences to obtain 2D and 3D cine MR images of moving and deforming lung tumors. The signal to noise ration (SNR) and spatiotemporal resolution of imaging sequences will be optimized into a format potentially useful for radiotherapy guidance.
