Some cancer patients report changes in their memory or thinking after treatment (referred to by some patients as “chemo brain”). These changes could be a result of alterations in brain structure, such as changes in the size or thickness of different parts of the brain. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of cancer treatment on the brain.
Researchers will compare high-resolution structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans between non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients who had surgery and chemotherapy and NSCLC patients who had surgery alone. Patients will have an MRI before surgery and about seven months after surgery.
