Imaging is also used when planning individual cancer care. Our imaging specialists and our newest three-tesla scanner enables more specific diagnosis and more tailored treatment plans. Docrates Cancer Center offers quick access to state-of-the art imaging equipment.
Magnetic resonance imaging can be utilized within cancer diagnostics and also in follow-up of cancer treatment results and if local reocurrance is suspected. Then magnetic resonance imaging is complementing other imaging or can verify local and spread metastases.
Magnetic resonance imaging can be used in many gynaecological areas due to its good detection of different soft tissues. With magnetic resonance imaging it is possible to detect deviant tissues for example in cervical and uterus cancer and also in cancer in vagina and genitals. With magnetic resonance imaging of ovaries for example benign changes from malign ones can be spotted. Also more precise timing of contrast agent is aiming at more exact definition of abnormal changes.
Magnetic resonance imaging is especially used in benign changes in endometeriosis as the deep metastases may be detected only with magnetic resonance imaging.
