(Co-Pls: Thomas Ernst, Ph.D. and Bruce Shiramizu, M.D., funding source: 1R21CA139712-01A1)

This Study aims to use MR techniques and cognitive tests to assess whether chemotherapy for the treatment of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia would cause brain abnormalities. Children will be studied at baseline (within 6 weeks after their chemotherapy treatment) and again in 12 months.
