The PICT Program brings together basic, translational and clinical scientists in order to integrate cutting edge, multi-modality imaging into all aspects of patient care and cancer research. By using novel imaging technologies and sophisticated data analysis tools to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of malignant transformation and drug resistance, it is possible to obtain a more precise understanding of disease progression and response to therapy. This is critical for identifying imaging phenotypes that will allow oncologists to tailor treatment strategies to specific tumor characteristics and provide improved outcomes.
The PICT Program conducts research under four themes:
The PICT Program forms a bridge between the Radiology & Biomedical Imaging (RBI) and HDFCCC that takes advantage of natural synergies between them. Both organizations have clinical and research components that are organ, biology or technology focused, as well as an extensive repertoire of core facilities. A major goal of the PICT program is to encourage its members to develop new research partnerships and provide them with seamless access to core resources for pursuing their scientific and clinical goals. The Biomedical Imaging Research Support Services provides PICT with imaging resources to ensure research is conducted to its full potential.
