With an average survival time of 4.4 months, pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest of all major cancers. The only known potentially creative treatment for pancreatic cancer is surgical resection, but only 15-20% of patients are eligible for this procedure, and even after successful resection, patients still only survive an average of 23 months. Resection is often combined with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. Oliver Gurney-Champion investigates how MRI can be optimised to support radiotherapy for pancreatic cancer.
