“Imaging Cellular Metabolism- Investigating Nutrient Flexibility in Health and Disease”

“Metabolism is a dynamic process where nutrients are converted into building blocks and energy. Metabolic alterations are a hallmark of many disease conditions. The ability to detect and quantify metabolism non-invasively offers the possibility of early diagnosis, measuring therapeutic efficacy as well as drug resistance. In this seminar, we discuss the potential of using hyperpolarized magnetic resonance spectroscopy (HP-MRS) to detect metabolic alterations in prostate and liver cancer.”
