A group of researchers in Trondheim, Norway, are the first in the world to use in vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to separate benign tumors from cancer. Ingrid Susann Gribbestad shows, in her recently published thesis, how one can discover breast cancer and monitor the treatment by using this new technology. The work is financed by the Norwegian Cancer Society and the Research Council of Norway.
www.kreft.no: The research behind this thesis was done at the Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research at the Norwegian Institute of Technology. The results also showed how MRS can be used to map metabolism connections in the breast.
” We are the first research group in the world who has used magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to map which chemical substances exist in the cancerous tumor compared to the surrounding healthy tissue. The finds in 30 patients show several differences, especially regarding sugar content, some amino acids, and choline, Gribbestad says to www.kreft.no.
