Minkowski functionals: An MRI texture analysis tool for determination of the aggressiveness of breast cancer (2015)
Journal Article
Pickles, M. D., Fox, M. J., & Gibbs, P. (2016). Minkowski functionals: An MRI texture analysis tool for determination of the aggressiveness of breast cancer. Journal of magnetic resonance imaging : JMRI, 43(4), (903-910). doi:10.1002/jmri.25057. ISSN 1053-1807

Purpose: This work aims to see whether Minkowski Functionals can be used to distinguish between cancer types before chemotherapy treatment has begun, and whether a response to treatment can be predicted by an initial scan alone. Methods: Fat-nulled T... Read More

Burke, B. P., Baghdadi, N., Kownacka, A. E., Nigam, S., Clemente, G. S., Al-Yassiry, M. M., …Archibald, S. J. (2015). Chelator free gallium-68 radiolabelling of silica coated iron oxide nanorods via surface interactions. Nanoscale, 7(36), (14889-14896). doi:10.1039/c5nr02753e. ISSN 2040-3364

The commercial availability of combined magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)/positron emission tomography (PET) scanners for clinical use has increased demand for easily prepared agents which offer signal or contrast in both modalities. Herein we describ... Read More

Lesion T2 relaxation times and volumes predict the response of malignant breast lesions to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (2007)
Journal Article
Tan, P. C., Pickles, M. D., Lowry, M., Manton, D. J., & Turnbull, L. W. (2008). Lesion T2 relaxation times and volumes predict the response of malignant breast lesions to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 26(1), (26-34). doi:10.1016/j.mri.2007.04.002. ISSN 0730-725X

The aim of this study was to investigate the utility of the water T-2 values of malignant breast lesions in predicting response after the first and second cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC), both alone and in combination with lesion volumes. Th... Read More
