Manganese enhanced MRI as an early technique for lung cancer

The objective of the project is to prove that the manganese enhanced MRI (MEMRI) technique could help to detect early-stage cancers and metastases in lungs which could be treated rapidly with a good prognosis. This patient friendly and inexpensive diagnostic technique will be tested in preclinical models and presented to clinicians to map to relevant questions. The final aim is to create a multinational consortium with oncologists and radiologists to develop a clinical research project based on the MEMRI technique to apply to national and international funding agencies.
