MRI 'Virtual Biopsy' of Brain Tumour

2015 28 May

A novel tiny drug-delivery system — so far tested in mice — can identify cancer cell types in the brain through “virtual biopsies” and then attack the molecular structure of the disease, according to researchers from Cedars-Sinai. If results are confirmed in human studies, the system could be used to deliver nanoscale drugs that can distinguish and... Read more
