Imaging in cancer

This research area involves the development of imaging methods that provide quantitative information on solid tumours. We are active in the development of MRI, PET, and CT methods with application both pre-clinically and clinically. We have close collaborations with researchers and clinicians based in the Christie Hospital, the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, and in the Cancer Studies Research Group.

Summary of current active research

Examples of recent projects include the:

  • Development of novel methods to measure tumour oxygenation non-invasively 
  • Measurement of tumour microvascular function
  • Measurements of tumour heterogeneity
