Chene Cho defends PhD thesis

Congratulations to Gene Cho on successful defense of his PhD thesis, Non-Invasive Analysis of the Tumor Microenvironment of Breast Cancer Using Diffusion MRI.
The thesis, advised by Dr. Daniel Sodickson and Dr. Eric Sigmund, evaluates the feasibility and capabilities of MRI techniques highly sensitive to cancerous tissue biomarkers—techniques such as diffusion MRI, intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM), and background perynchymal enhancement (BPE). The techniques are analyzed in order to better understand their relation to physiological events in tumor microenvironment, to demonstrate their utility in clinical care, and to suggest further enhancements.
