NaF/FDG PET/MRI in Measuring Response to Radium Ra 223 Dichloride in Patients With Metastatic Hormone-Resistant Prostate Cancer

This pilot clinical trial studies combined fluorine F 18 sodium fluoride (NaF)/ fludeoxyglucose F 18 (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in measuring response to a drug, radium Ra 223 dichloride (Ra-223), in treating patients with prostate cancer that has not responded to hormone therapy and has spread to other parts of the body. Combining NaF/FDG in a simultaneous PET/MRI scan may help doctors accurately measure how well patients respond to treatment with radium Ra 223 dichloride.
