The feasibility of hyperpolarized 13C-Pyruvate MRI for monitoring patients with intracranial metastasis

Project Overview

Surgery and radiation are standard treatments for cancer that has spread to the brain. Recent research has revealed that cancer cells with high levels of the chemical lactate are aggressive and resist radiation therapy. Dr Charles Cunningham will study whether an enhanced imaging method that can det…
