Current Research

Our group is focused on the development and validation of methods for Cancer Imaging, mostly by MRI. Of particular interest to us is the tumour micro-environment and associated tissue heterogeneity. Our experimental techniques include dynamic-contrast-enhanced MRI, diffusion-weighted MRI, dynamic susceptibility-weighted imaging and MR spectroscopy. We use these techniques in clinical (imaging) trials and in pre-clinical research on tumour models. The objective of our work is the identification of imaging biomarkers that can be used clinically for the detection of cancer and monitoring of treatment. An important aspect of this effort is the validation of imaging biomarkers through the use of co-registered histological mapping.
