Science Snapshot: Deciphering the Magnetic Signature of Cancer

  1. 18.4.2019

    A multidisciplinary team of scientists and clinicians at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown, developed a new noninvasive MRI methodology, called SPI (Susceptibility Perturbation MRI), that is able to identify whether lymph nodes have been infiltrated by malignant cells with high accuracy in rectal cancer patients.

    Such a characterisation can help define treatment strategy for rectal cancer patients and may have future implications for other malignancies.
