Overview

Study Title

Phase II Study of Screening Brain MRIs in Stage IV Breast Cancer

Summary

The purpose of the study is to determine the incidence of asymptomatic brain metastasis in stage IV breast cancer by subtype (triple negative (TN), HER2+, and hormone receptor (HR)+).

Objective

Primary: To determine the incidence of asymptomatic brain metastasis in metastatic breast cancer by subtype. Secondary Objectives: To determine the incidence of asymptomatic leptomeningeal disease in metastatic breast cancer by subtype. To determine the number of brain metastases at initial diagnosis in metastatic breast cancer by subtype. To determine the size of the largest brain metastasis at initial diagnosis in metastatic breast cancer by subtype. To determine the number of patients requiring whole brain radiation therapy vs stereotactic radiation following brain metastasis diagnosis in metastatic breast cancer by subtype. To determine overall survival following brain metastasis diagnosis in metastatic breast cancer by subtype. To determine brain metastasis specific survival following brain metastasis diagnosis in metastatic breast cancer by subtype.
