Breast cancer differentation with the RWI exchange method

In this publication, different breast cancer subtypes are distinguished using our exchange method.

Although MRI has shown promise for the characterization of breast cancer, it has low specificity to malignant subtypes. Here, the ability of our exchange method was tested, and shown to be able to distinguish different types of breast cancer cells. Furthermore, the method was also found to be able to measure water exchange over membranes in tumor tissue, but not normal tissue, in vivo.

Our colleague Dr. Samo Lasič, together with collaborators in Hvidovre, Denmark, run an ongoing study investigating whether our MRI methods are able to differentiate between MS-related pathologies in focal lesions, as well as in normal appearing white matter. They are also evaluating the diagnostic value of these new MRI methods, to prepare for implementation in […]
