CT Perfusion Images in Assessing Treatment Response in Patients With Pancreatic Cancer

Complete title: Evaluation of CT Perfusion Parameters as a Potential Biomarker for Pancreatic Cancer

Research Study Number 9625
 
Principal Investigator Ryan O'Malley
 
Phase Pilot

Research Study Description

This pilot clinical trial studies how well computed tomography (CT) perfusion images work in assessing treatment response in patients with pancreatic cancer. Analyzing specific measurements on the CT perfusion images may help doctors better determine how a tumor responds to chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy and may help guide treatment for patients with pancreatic cancer.
