UCSF prof uses hyperpolarized MRI to target tumors, diseases

A group of researchers under the leadership of Daniel Vigneron, PhD, at the University of California, San Fransisco's Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging is in the process of developing hyperpolarized MRI techniques to detect, label and target brain and prostate tumors.   

“The goal of our research is to improve understanding of what causes diseases such as cancer, diabetes, liver and kidney disease, then come up with new ways to treat them, and then follow that with our techniques,” said Vigneron in a press release

Vigneron's work is allowing health imaging specialists to accurately identify, monitor and treat cancer and diseases.
