Clinical Seminar: Imaging brain tumours
Non invasive imaging techniques can help improve outcome and survival rates for patients with brain tumours by more accurately detecting, delineating and grading tumours before, during and after treatment.
The arsenal of MRI techniques has expanded over the past few years, going beyond assessment of tumour morphology to capture the physiologic and metabolic fingerprint of a tumour.
This seminar will review a selection of current diagnostic concepts for brain tumours and explore advanced MRI techniques.
