Functional MRI techniques demonstrate early vascular changes in renal cell cancer patients treated with sunitinib: a pilot study

OBJECTIVE To assess the early vascular effects of sunitinib in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI), dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and T2* perfusion MRI. PATIENTS AND METHODS In 10 patients with abdominal RCC lesions, DWI, DCE-MRI and T2* perfusion MRI… CONTINUE READING
