‘Virtual biopsy’ – A new way to look at cancer

Scientists are using new imaging technology to help them perform "virtual biopsies," ? biological profiles of specific tumors that may help predict a patient's response to treatment and probability of long-term survival. This whole new realm of imaging is called functional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), a process that offers insight into a tumor's character, not just its superficial structure.
