– To validate non-invasive, MRI-based markers of tumor hypoxia in patients with brain metastases or head and neck cancer with and without evidence of tumor hypoxia identified by 18F-FMISO-PET-CT.
- To assess treatment-related changes in tumor and peritumoral tissue oxygen consumption and perfusion via non-invasive MRI.
- To evaluate the effect of pre-treatment and post-treatment (3 months) tumor hypoxia on tumor recurrence, progression, and radiation necrosis in patients with central nervous system metastases treated with standard of care stereotactic radiosurgery.
