Current focus

Developing radiologic pathology for the noninvasive characterisation of intratumoural temporal and spatial heterogeneity
The aim of this project is to use computer modelling to integrate the spatially-encoded phenotypic information provided by advanced multiparametric MRI and validated by digital histopathology to demonstrate that MRI can be used as a noninvasive pathology technique (radiologic pathology) to characterise tumour temporal and spatial heterogeneity and can therefore, complement and guide both conventional and molecular pathology. Advanced anatomical, structural and molecular MRI strategies not only can provide information about tumour shape and boundaries, but can at the same time provide noninvasive biomarkers that inform on both spatial and temporal changes in tumour metabolism, vascularisation, inflammation, cellular and stromal integrity, as well as tumour chemical and mechanical properties. Spatial statistics can also be employed to incorporate spatial data from digital image analysis.
