Amide Proton Transfer imaging in clinical practice. National Neuroscience Institute, Singapore

Three-Dimensional Amide Proton Transfer (3D APT) is a unique, contrast-free, brain MR imaging method addressing the need for more confident diagnosis in neuro oncology. 3D APT uses the presence of endogenous cellular proteins to produce an MR signal that directly correlates with cell proliferation, a marker of tumor activity. 3D APT supports medical professionals in differentiating low from high grade gliomas, and tumor progression from treatment effect.

Join us in this exclusive webinar with National Neuroscience Institute, Singapore. Live Q&A with the speaker follows at the end of the session.
