|Condition or disease|
|Cancer of Pancreas|
- Finding patients with pancreatic cancer (in all stages), before any treatment.
- Non invasively quantify fatty infiltration of pancreas using, MRI DIXON Scan in pancreatic cancer patient relatively to liver.
- Measuring cell-free blood DNA in those patients for evaluating the aggressiveness of the disease.
- Quantify the prognostic significance of pancreatic steatosis in comparison with clinical and pathological prognostic indexes used today.
