Heterogeneity Imaging Research Lab

Overview

Nina Mayr, M.D., professor and chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology, specializes in the treatment of lung and women’s cancers and neuro-oncology. Her lab’s research focuses on imaging in radiation oncology, developing new ways to improve radiotherapy effectiveness.

Areas of Research

Tumor Imaging

Dr. Mayr’s lab utilizes functional/molecular imaging as a predictor for cancer treatment outcomes. Researchers in the lab use magnetic resonance imaging and mathematical models based on tumor heterogeneity metrics to predict tumor control and survival. The lab’s focus is to devise simple, noninvasive and personalized methods to better identify tumor response and early signs of treatment failure.

 

Open Projects

MRI and PET Imaging in Predicting Treatment Response in Patients with Stage IB-IVA Cervical Cancer

This clinical trial studies magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging in predictive treatment response in patients with stage IB-IVA cervical cancer. Comparing results of diagnostic procedures, such as MRI and PET, done before, during and after radiation and chemotherapy may help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment.
