Using functional imaging to improve chemoradiotherapy outcomes in pancreatic and rectal cancer: moving towards a hypoxia targeting approach

Abstract:

Biologically individualised, adaptive radiotherapy requires the integration of information obtained from molecular biomarkers with functional imaging to inform high-precision radiotherapy planning. Functional imaging allows the non-invasive assessment of heterogeneity in a number of tumour physiological characteristics, including the well-documented cause of chemoradioresistance, hypoxia. Functional imaging may be useful in treatment strategy selection and biological target volume (BTV) de...
