Advanced Imaging in Musculoskeletal Oncology: Moving Away From RECIST and Embracing Advanced Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor Imaging (ABASTI)—Part II—Novel Functional Imaging Techniques

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Functional imaging can add valuable information to conventional imaging in the settings of tumor characterization and treatment response assessment. Traditional response criteria rely primarily on physical measurements, while functional imaging can potentially give a more comprehensive evaluation of oncological status. The second part of this review article discusses advanced imaging techniques such as susceptibility-weighted imaging, tumor-associated macrophage imaging, diffusion-weighted imaging, perfusion-weighted imaging, Dixon imaging, whole-body magnetic resonance imaging, whole-body low-dose dual energy computed tomography with virtual noncalcium technique, and ultrasound elastography.
