Hundreds of thousands of patients in England are waiting more than a month for radiology test results, a royal college has warned.
Cancer Research UK-funded scientists have determined that a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique, which measures the movement of water molecules within the tumour, may be the best way to monitor how women with late-stage ovarian cancer are responding to treatment. The study is published in the journal Radiology today.
A cutting edge technique that boosts the sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) more than 10,000 fold could allow cancer patients to find out within days of starting treatment how their tumours are likely to respond – a Cancer Research UK study published in Nature Medicine has revealed.
