Scientists create 3-D bladder reconstruction
Dr. Joseph Liao was part of the team that developed 3-D computer reconstruction of a bladder that can give surgeons a better way to see tumors in order to remove them.
Important study could lead to a new diagnostic tool that could be used to determine positive surgical margins in almost real time in the operating room
Dr. Geoff Sonn's recent publication in PNAS may enable more accurate diagnosis of prostate cancer by imaging metabolites to offer a rapid, almost real-time diagnosis for men undergoing prostate biopsy.
Kidney cancer research paper featured on the cover of Oncotarget
Publication titled "Novel lincRNA SLINKY is a prognostic biomarker in kidney cancer" was published as a priority paper and reviewed in an accompanying editorial in the journal titled "Untangling ccRCC prognosis with SLINKY".
A new imaging technique, which works on any hollow organ, could help doctors better prepare for surgery
Advanced computer imaging technology has created a three-dimensional computer reconstruction of a patient's bladder. The technique, which works on any hollow organ, could help doctors locate tumors or other disorders and prepare for surgery
