MRI scan used for heart disease could also pick out aggressive cancers, spot early signs: Study | Health News

London: A type of smart MRI scan used in people with heart disease could help assess whether children`s cancers are especially aggressive and spot early signs that targeted treatments are working, a new study suggests. Researchers showed that the MRI imaging technique, known as T1-mapping, could offer crucial insights into the biology of childhood cancers and give an early warning of how effective targeted treatments were likely to be.  T1 mapping scans measure how water molecules interact at a microscopic level inside cells to understand the cellular make-up of tissue and…
