Taking a closer look at tumors

If doctors can see what happens in tumours at the microscopic level before and during anti-cancer treatment, they can tailor the treatment to the specific tumour accordingly. A technique called quantitative MRI makes it possible to measure tumour microstructure such as cell density and blood circulation. However, current quantitative MRI approaches give poor images that are deformed, blurry and inaccurate. That’s why Gurney-Champion will develop a novel artificial intelligence-based approach that will produce clear, sharp and accurate images.
