Brain metastases are the most common malignancy in the brain and can be caused by different primary tumors. The Sodium-SRS study is a prospective feasibility study to observe TSC changes in brain metastases around ablative stereotactical radiosurgery (SRS) treatment with 22 Gy single dose using GammaKnife. TSC was measured with 23Na MRI in two patients at three different time points. The prelimenary results showed feasibility to detect TSC dynamics in brain metastases treated with SRS, which warrants further evaluation.
