- Measure of Liver Function Before, During and After Radiation [ Time Frame: 2-3 months for treatment; indefinite for follow-up ]The primary objective of this research is to assess how a course of radiation therapy changes the way blood flows through the liver. Researchers want to use the information collected from this research for future research, to see if this change in blood flow indicates that an individual patient is at higher risk for complications from the radiation therapy, specifically Radiation-Induced Liver Disease (RILD). To be able to do this, the researchers will be using MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans completed before, during, and after radiation therapy.
- Measure of Liver Perfusion [ Time Frame: Follow-up - Approximately 7 Years ]Develop a model to predict post-treatment liver perfusion based on pre-treatment perfusion, intratreatment perfusion, and radiation dose.
- Association Between Liver Perfusion and Changes in Tumor and Clinical Outcomes [ Time Frame: Follow-up - Approximately 7 years ]Explore the association between liver perfusion changes in tumor and clinical outcomes, including the size of tumor; local tumor progression; distant metastases; overall survival; and toxicity (radiation-induced liver disease).
