Conventional imaging with Computerized Tomography (CT), ultrasound scanning and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are widely used to measure the response to conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy, based on tumour size criteria. However, several of the newly discovered targeted molecular treatments demonstrate cytostatic, as opposed to the traditional cytotoxic effects of chemotherapy, therefore defining response by tumour shrinkage may be an inadequate way to measure efficacy. Change in tumour vasculature has been incorporated in measuring response to anticancer treatments. Tissue perfusion has been previously estimated with the use of dynamic contrast CT.
Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Open Access is one of the top online publishing journals for research from the field of Conventional Imaging Computerized Tomography. The open access articles published in this scholarly journal are reviewed by at least two reviewers of the associated fields. The journal publishes original research articles, reviews, case reports, short communications, etc and emphasizes theoretical and experimental work. To ensure high quality articles, both editors and reviewers actively participate in the peer review process and help in completing the review process within 21 days. As an important educational platform the journal provides scientists and researchers access to the newest trends and research outlooks. Please browse through the list of peer-reviewed journals to find the scientific publication of your interest.
