This course will introduce the different imaging modalities that are used in (clinical) oncology research. This lecture gives a brief overview of these imaging techniques and the quantitative information that can be derived from it. Combining information from different modalities can aid in answering typical questions related to oncology.
At the end of this lecture you will know:
· What different MR modalities are being used in oncology research (and clinic).
· What their quantitative endpoint is.
· What other imaging modalities such as PET and optical imaging have to offer for oncology (research) and what their quantitative endpoint is.
· How information of different modalities can be combined in research and clinical questions.
