The aim of this study is to estimate the degree of residual hypoxia after whole brain radiation therapy in patients with brain metastases from breast cancer as quantified by F18 EF5 PETCT imaging. There has been great difficulty in accruing patient to this study due to the nature of the brain metastases resulting in cognitive decline, decline in performance status, andor inability to complete the imaging study. We have amended the study to enhance accrual by opening to our satellite hospitals as well as those receiving stereotactic radiosurgery for brain metastases.
