Cancer imaging centers get £35 million boost
Date:10/24/2013

Research, London, a joint imaging centre between King's College London and University College London and a new collaboration between the University of Cambridge and University of Manchester.

Imaging plays a crucial role in cancer management in three main ways; as an initial assessment of the extent of the cancer at the time of diagnosis, as a tool for guiding therapy and to assess patient response to therapy.

The cancer imaging centre in Cambridge and Manchester combines cutting-edge translational research and clinical trials with state-of-the-art imaging, genomics and pre-clinical research. By combining these two locations the cancer imaging centre has access to a large patient population and vital clinical trials infrastructure.

The cancer imaging centre in Oxford aims to integrate basic research in chemistry, physics and cancer biology with imaging science to guide treatment choices for cancer patients.

The cancer imaging centre at King's College London and University College London combine cutting-edge technology development at King's College London with the genomics expertise and clinical trials as well as access to the first clinical simultaneous PET/MRI facility in the UK. The facility focuses on determining the differences in a patient's tumour and in bringing new imaging methods to the clinic.

The cancer imaging centre at The Institute of Cancer Research, London is part of the largest comprehensive Cancer Centre in Europe and will focus on enabling 'personalised' medicine for each individual patient. New imaging techniques, such as identifying an imaging 'fingerprint' of aggressive disease, will help determine which tumours have the greatest risk of progression.

Dr Iain Foulkes added: "This investment will help drive major improvements for cancer patients in the future. Research is unlocking cancer's secrets and our ability to see what is going on with cancers is essential to better diagnose, mon
