Information about the prostate cancer projects and summary of published results.

Project badgeProject badge

The projects and published results in this group deal with prostate cancer.

We investigate the use of multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy for prostate cancer detection, focused on early-stage cancer diagnosis, anatomical segmentation, region of interest identification, machine learning and characterising biomarkers.
