- combine the underlying molecular changes in prostate cancer with novel MR techniques, T2 mapping, ADC Map and long b diffusion sequence.
- identify the imaging (mpMRI, T2 mapping, VERDICT and 13C Hyperpolarised MR) endotype in patients with early prostate cancer that is associated with aggressive disease to avoid overtreatment of patients.
- develop a methodology to estimate histology from the MRI. Using machine learning to derive precise prostate histopathological mapping of tumours from mp-MRI images.
- develop a new technology: Susceptibility-Based Cancer Oxygenation Mapping (SBCOM) in prostate cancer and to investigate its clinical potential to non-invasively determine prostate cancers’ hypoxic status.
The post is funded for 2 years in the first instance with opportunity to extend for a further year.
