Multiparametric MRI at 3 Tesla for Prediction of Treatment Response in Rectal Cancer

The article describes the successful integration of a multiparametric MRI technique to monitor response to treatment in patients with rectal cancer. A voxel-by-voxel multiparametric analysis strategy has been adopted and early results show this is important in quantitatively assessing heterogeneity within the entire tumor region, and the changes in response to CRT in rectal cancer.

The Potential Role of Ultrashort Echo Time Sequences in MRI Guided Radiotherapy

This work shows the potential of ultra-short TE sequences to play an important role in MR guided Radiotherapy. Acquiring signal intensity at vastly reduced echo time opens up new imaging contrasts and many possibilities. [...]
