An increasing number of vascular-modulating drugs are used in the treatment of cancers, which in turn increase demand for noninvasive methods of assessing tumor vascularity in vivo.
Perfusion CT is a new technology that allows measurement of tumor vascular physiology .
Apart from being noninvasive and fast, it can be repeated at regular intervals to assess tumor response to antiangiogenic therapy.
Here we present a futuristic clinical applications of perfusion CT using 64 slice MDCT scanner.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
Evaluation of the role of computed tomography perfusion (CTP) examination for : differentiation between malignant and non-malignant lymph nodes.
