Examples for clinical application

Monitoring bone marrow metastases treatment

Histogram analysis of whole-body diffusion-weighted images and ADC maps has been documented to be a powerful tool to monitor response to treatment in skeletal therapy.

Earlier assessment of response to TACE therapy

Volumetric functional MR assessment is documented to predict TACE therapy response after one month1, where the currently available imaging criteria (morphology-based) assess therapy response after six months, earliest2.

The benefits are two-fold: Treatment path optimization and savings of unnecessary treatment costs.
