Recent advances in medical imaging methods i.e. magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound (US) enable refined characterization of cancers from various origins. The imaging methods provide detailed information on microstructural- and functional tumor characteristics. Furthermore, the use of novel machine learning (ML) techniques on diagnostic images allows expedited automated radiomic tumor profiling, yielding information potentially relevant for prognostication and tailoring of treatment.

With a particular focus on gynecologic cancers, Bergen Cancer Imaging Research Group (BCIRG) aims to explore the role of conventional imaging and radiomic tumor profiling in clinical and preclinical cancer models in order to provide better markers with which to guide treatment and improve patient care. BCIRG is embedded within Mohn Medical Imaging and Visualization Centre and has had a long-term collaboration with Bergen Gynecologic Cancer Research Group.
