Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine if quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (qMRI) can objectively measure changes in the tumor/vertebral body and adjacent spinal cord following stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for painful metastatic spine disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Spinal Metastases Device: qMRI with Gadoteridol contrast agent Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Metastatic spine disease (MSD) can result in considerable morbidity from pain, spinal cord compromise and neurologic disability. Recent developments in image-guidance and immobilization have enabled more accurate target localization, which allows methods of precise high-dose radiation delivery such as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). SBRT carries potential risks of radiation induced myelopathy (RIM) and vertebral compression fracture (VCF). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a sensitive imaging modality that may be able to detect radiation-induced damage in the vertebral body or spinal cord following SBRT. Quantitative MR-based imaging methods may also help to quantify treatment response and help predict subsequent outcomes such as tumor control and VCF risk.

Drug Information available for: Gadoteridol

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: quantitative MRI at 4 weeks Device: qMRI with Gadoteridol contrast agent
quantitative MR: MRI uses a magnet and radio waves to make medical images of the body. Gadoteridol is used as a contrast agent. Quantitative MRI involves the use of software to analyze the acquired images.
Other Name: quantitative MRI




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Relative Change in Sequence specific parameters for Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
  2. Relative Change in Sequence specific parameters for Diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
  3. Relative Change in Sequence specific parameters for Dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in numeric pain score as measured by the Numeric Pain Rating Scale [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
    Measured from 0-10 with 0 being no pain and 10 being severe pain

  2. Change in numeric pain score as measured by the Brief Pain Inventory [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
    Measured from 0-10 with 0 being no pain and 10 being worst imaginable pain

  3. Change in numeric pain score as measured by the EQ5D Pain Questionnaire [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
    Measured from 0-10 with 0 being no pain and 10 being worst imaginable pain

  4. Change in opioid use [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
  5. Change in quality of life as measured by the Pat Sf36 V2 assessment [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
    Pat SF36 V2 is a quality of life survey about physical activity, general health and daily functions measured from excellent/much better/yes, limited a lot/all of the time/not at all, through poor/much worse/no,not limited at all/none of the time/extremely with additional not answered option

  6. Change in quality of life as measured by the PROMIS assessment [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
    PROMIS categories include physical function, anxiety, depression, fatigue, sleep and pain ranging from never/not at all through always/very much.

  7. Change in quality of life as measured by the SOSG+ assessment [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 wks ]
    Questionnaire about physical function, neurological function and pain ranging from never/not at all through always/very much

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • A diagnosis of metastatic cancer with a vertebral body metastasis or contiguous vertebral body metastases for which SBRT is appropriate
  • Age ≥ 18 years of age
  • KPS ≥ 70
  • Life expectancy of at least 3 months
  • No contraindication to undergoing MR imaging
  • Serum creatinine must be measured within 7 days prior to the research MRI with GFR >/= 30 mL/min2
  • Women of childbearing age must have a negative serum pregnancy test to meet eligibility per Duke Policy
  • Pre-treatment pain score of at least 3/10 based on the numeric pain rating scale (NPRS)
  • Disease located from C1 to L2

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects unable to undergo MRI (includes non-MRI compatible material or devices and severe claustrophobia)
  • Vertebral body metastasis from L3-sacrum where spinal cord is no longer apparent
  • Subjects with prior radiation to the involved vertebral body
  • Subjects with prior procedural intervention to the involved vertebral body that would result in artifact (kyphoplasty, screw and/or rod placement); minimally invasive surgery without instrumentation of the involved vertebral body and instrumentation immediately above or below the index lesion is allowed.
  • Subjects with spinal cord compression; minimally invasive "separation" surgery to first resect the epidural component is allowed
  • Pregnant or breast-feeding women
  • Allergy to standard IV contrast agents used in MRI
  • Subjects with eGFR <30 30 mL/min2 or on dialysis
