The aim of this study is to develop new tools using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that will improve the brachytherapy procedure and treatment for participants with gynecologic cancer. This research study is designed to develop new technology using MR imaging to improve the brachytherapy procedure for participants with gynecologic cancer. The brachytherapy procedure will take place in an MRI procedure room within the Advanced Multimodality Image-Guided Operating (AMIGO) suite at Brigham and Women's Hospital. The purpose of the study will be to evaluate whether the use of an MR-tracking device will improve the placement of the brachytherapy catheters. This information will also be used to develop new software for real-time brachytherapy planning by our physics team. The investigators believe that the development of an MR-tracking device will allow them to better place the brachytherapy catheters for radiation treatment and ultimately improve outcomes for patients, including better local tumor control and a lower risk of side effects. The investigators will also evaluate new MRI protocols to better define the tumor at the time of brachytherapy. Brachytherapy treatment planning and delivery will follow the standard of care.
