Imaging is essential in the management of cancer, especially liver cancer. The optimization of imaging, mainly by the use of cross-sectional imaging techniques, allows both morphological and functional assessment, enabling the extraction of information directly from functional and cellular tissue (cellularity, vascularization, angiogenesis, spectroscopic quantification) within tumoral lesions.
The research and development topics of the research group in translational imaging concern primarily the optimization of non-invasive imaging techniques for the preclinical detection of cancer and the study of transformation mechanisms by imaging in vivo.
Three research topics are currently being explored:
TDM imaging in spectral decomposition:
iodine / water mapping illustrating iodine enhancement in CHC nodules
