Speaker: Dr Patrick Hales, UCL GOS Institute of Child Health, “Exploring the biology of childhood brain tumours using advancing magnetic resonance imaging”

Abstract: Brain tumours represent the most common solid tumour of childhood, and the highest cause of paediatric cancer-related mortality. An individual patient’s prognosis is highly dependent on the location and biology of their tumour, and as such, non-invasive diagnostic imaging forms an essential part of a patient’s clinical management. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the preferred modality for diagnosing brain tumours and monitoring a patient’s response to treatment. However, although conventional MRI techniques are highly effective at identifying the size and location of a tumour, they leave many questions un-answered regarding its biology and microstructure.
