Brain cancer: improving diagnosis using scanning technology

Every year in the UK, about 400 children are diagnosed with brain cancer. Although current treatments can save lives, they can also cause serious, long-term side-effects. Andrew Peet is aiming to tailor treatment more closely to individuals’ needs. By using a sophisticated technique that provides information on the chemical make-up of tumours, he hopes to gain more information about the patient’s condition from MRI scans. This could enable earlier and more accurate predictions of how aggressive each cancer is likely to be.
