New Imaging Procedure Monitors Cancer Patients Without Radiation

Israeli doctors have developed a new imaging procedure to monitor cancer patients without exposing them to the dangers of radiation. 


Imaging Without Radiation

Doctors at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center have developed a new method to monitor tumors without injecting patients with radioactive substances.



Magnetic resonance imaging can alert doctors to suspicious acidity levels in the body and reveal the existence of a tumor. The researchers used a diagnostic tool to measure metabolic cell activity. Consequently, they were able to determine whether tumors are benign or malignant.  Furthermore, they can also assess various treatments.

This method avoids using a biopsy or other invasive procedures to measure a tissue’s acidity levels. Moreover, it also can determine whether a tumor is malignant or benign without giving patients unnecessary radiation.
