MRI-guided Cryoablation Safely Freezes Tumors in the Spine

November 13, 2018

Treatment of epidural tumours located in the spinal canal can be highly challenging, due to the risk of causing irreversible damage. To address this challenge, a medical team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana Farber Cancer Institute have performed a study showing that MRI-guided cryoablation is feasible for treating such epidural tumours.

Principal investigator Thomas Lee demonstrates an active cryoprobe that had just been tested in water to ensure formation of...

Frank Preiswerk Receives Second Best Abstract Award

July 12, 2018

Frank Preiswerk, PhD, of the Department of Radiology, earned the Second Best Abstract Award at the 2018 International Workshop on Osteoarthritis Imaging (IWOAI) for his work on detection of bone marrow lesion (BML) segmentation using deep learning, a subset of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Preiswerk’s project examined whether an advanced computer algorithm could identify BML segmentation as accurately as experienced radiologists – ultimately finding that both methods were nearly equivalent. Preiswerk and his team noted that, given the time and resources...
