Applying advanced neuroimaging techniques in enabling safer clinical practices in Neuro-oncology
Brain tumours are a leading cause of mortality and morbidity. On one hand is the challenge of making an accurate diagnosis to match the WHOs newly published molecular classification, and on the other is the challenge of assessing response to treatment. This seminar addresses these key issues with strong focus on precision medicine, and the adoption of advanced imaging biomarkers: perfusion, diffusion, PET-MR, volumetrics and spectroscopy as complementing conventional imaging.
