Using MRIs to Screen for Brain Metastases in Advanced Breast Cancer

Screening Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain in Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer Managed With First/Second Line Chemotherapy or Inflammatory Breast Cancer Managed With Definitive Intent: A Prospective Study Scientific Title

Purpose
To study if using MRIs to screen for brain metastases (breast cancer that has spread to the brain) is safe and finds brain metastases earlier than the standard of care (no screening).
Who is this for?
People with advanced (some stage III) or metastatic (stage IV) breast cancer who will be starting their first or second chemotherapy for advanced disease.    Full eligibility criteria
