Using MRI to predict the therapeutic response in breast cancer

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. During the last two decades, significant therapeutic advances reduced the mortality thanks to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) which helps to reduce tumor volume and allows a more conservative surgery ...  Learn more 

 

 

Whole-body MRI, a new non-invasive tool for the detection of prostatic cancer metastasis and evaluation of their response to treatment

Despite permanent diagnostic and therapeutic progress, 30 to 70% of prostate cancers (the most common cancer in men) evolve into metastases affecting the bones and ganglia. Their early detection is essential to the patient's therapeutic management ... Learn more

 

 

Determine alteration of tissue microstructure using diffusion MRI

Diffusion describes the random movement (Brownian) of water molecules. In living tissues, diffusion is not free. The probability law of the water molecules displacements depends on the cellular environment. This relationship between the water movement and the cellular environment is workable for diagnostic purposes in pathologies such as stroke or cancer (tumor) ... Learn more
