My research interests are focused on using multi-modality imaging techniques (PET, MRI and CT) to characterize solid tumors. These different modalities provide complementary information. Combining the techniques can provide new insights about the tumor micro-environment. Many tumors are very inhomogeneous in cellular phenotype. Biological characteristics such as cell density, perfusion and proliferation vary greatly within lesions. The high spatial variation can have implications for response to therapy, as some regions will and others will not respond. With a combination of imaging techniques this heterogeneity can be assessed, and therapy can be tailored on an individual basis.
