Furthermore, novel functional imaging methods may provide information regarding the function of the abdominal organs and of the tumors arising there. This information may prove highly relevant for treatment and prognosis of abdominal diseases. The main focus of Bergen Abdominal Imaging Research Group is to identify and validate clinically relevant imaging biomarkers in order to enable tailored and individualized treatment in patients with abdominal disease.
