Imaging the Force of Cancer

Deliverables

Report on results from preclinical trials

Results from in vivo tests on orthotopically implanted tumours or experimental metastasis in mice using both research scanner and commercial scanner. The aim is to verify results from the in vitro experiments.

Report on clinical MRF protocol for breast

After 14 month KCL has collected data about the reproducibility, stability, and precision of the current MRF protocol

Final report on TFM results

This report will demonstrate the degree to which TFM derived force measurements correlate with MRF derived values. This represents an important step in the validation of MRF for being able to actually measure the active forces of a tumour exerted onto its habitat.
