An illustration by Therese Seierstad from Dag Rune Olsen's group at the Department of Radiation Biology was selected for the cover page of a recent number of Neoplasia.
The selected cover figure depicts early histological changes following chemo-irradiation.
Seierstad et al. describe in this paper how non-invasive diffusion-MRI can predict treatment response following combined chemo-irradiation in a human colon adenocarcinoma xenograft model.
The paper represents the first scientific article in Seierstad’s PhD. Neoplasia has currently an impact factor of 4.9.
