Sugar Helps 'Light-up' Cancer in MRI Scanners
ANI  | 
Researchers have made a breakthrough for detecting cancer by imaging the sugar consumption with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).   The new breakthrough may help provide a safer and simpler alternative to standard radioactive techniques and enable radiologists to image tumours in greater detail.   The new technique, called 'glucose chemical exchange saturation transfer' (glucoCEST), is based on the fact that tumours consume more glucose (a type of sugar) than normal, healthy tissues in order to sustain their growth.
