NCRI 2016 | Functional imaging for influencing management: paradigm shift or pipe dream?
Nandita deSouza, MBBS, MD, FRCP, FRCR of the The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK discusses as session on ‘Functional imaging for influencing management: paradigm shift or pipe dream’ at the 2016 National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Conference in Liverpool, UK. The question, according to Prof. deSouza, is if we are talking about a paradigm shift or a pipe dream. She explains that we are used to anatomical imaging but functional imaging techniques have become more advanced now and they can help us characterize tumors and assess response. The topics covered in the session included clinical decision-making, introducing functional imaging in practice, molecular targeted agents, and quantitation of functional imaging.
