Deep learning improves interpretation of tumors

NIBIB-funded engineers are using deep learning to differentiate tumors more accurately from normal tissue in positron emission tomography (PET) images. Standard analysis of PET scans count black regions as tumor and white ...

An important step towards live imaging in proton therapy

Researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) want to build the world's first prototype that tracks moving tumors with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in real time during proton therapy. They are combining ...

Developing microbeam radiation therapy (MRT) for inoperable cancer

An innovative radiation treatment that could one day be a valuable addition to conventional radiation therapy for inoperable brain and spinal tumors is a step closer, thanks to new research led by University of Saskatchewan ...

Simple measurement method improves accuracy in proton beam therapy

Proton beams are new high-precision weapons in the fight against cancer. However, uncertainty with regard to the range of the beams has prevented the full exploitation of the potential of this method until now. Researchers ...
