Novel oncologic therapy response criteria (iRECIST and more)

Advances in oncology therapies, such as novel immune-related agents, require adapted and refined criteria and guidelines for the assessment and prediction of treatment response.

 

At RSNA 2016, Mint Medical showcases a comprehensive set of new criteria including mRECIST mesothelioma, the Lugano (Cheson 2014 lymphoma) Classification, the Prostate Cancer Working Group (PCWG2) criteria, and iRECIST.
