MRI, Near Infrared Spectral Tomography Increases Specificity in Breast Cancer Imaging

July 9, 2015

By combining two modalities of imaging, investigators from Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth, led by Keith Paulsen, PhD with first authorMichael Mastanduno and collaborators from Xijing Hospital in Xian, China, demonstrated that a dual breast exam using MRI and Near Infrared Spectral Tomography (NIRST) is feasible and more accurate than MRI alone. 

Their paper, “MR-guided Near Infrared Spectral Tomography Increases Diagnostic Performance of Breast MRI,” was published in Clinical Cancer Research..
