New MRI Technique Could Offer Radiation-free Alternative for Visualising Cancerous Tumours in Children

February 19, 2014
In The Lancet Oncology, our research team reports that a new whole body diffusion weighted MRI scanning technique, which uses an iron supplement (ferumoxytol) to enhance tumour visibility, is just as effective as PET/CT imaging in the detection of malignant tumors in pediatric patients, with comparable sensitivities, specificities, and diagnostic accuracy. Average exposure to ionising radiation was 12.5 mSv for 18F-FDG PET/CT compared with zero for whole-body MRI. Saving radiation exposure from diagnostic scans is particularly relevant for children, because they are more radiosensitive than adults and live long enough to encounter radiation-induced secondary cancers.
