Pressemitteilung: Neue diagnostische Methode zur Konsistenz von Lebertumoren

Pressemitteilung Forschende der Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin haben eine neue diagnostische Methode entwickelt, die es ermöglicht, die Konsistenz von Tumoren durch Magnetresonanztomografie (MRT) zu bewerten. Mithilfe der sogenannten Tomoelastografie konnten sie jetzt die mechanischen Eigenschaften von Lebertumoren aufzeigen. Die Studie ist in der Fachzeitschrift Cancer Research* erschienen.  Lebertumoren stellen weltweit die fünfthäufigste aller Tumorerkrankungen dar…
