Glioma surveillance imaging—An interview with Dr Sotirios Bisdas

The Power of Imaging in Neuro-Oncology

“The multimodality and combined MRI/PET imaging is expected to provide the necessary framework for personalised treatment regimes, and I’ll put special emphasis here on immunotherapy, and ultimately guidance towards precision oncology…glioma patients will benefit particularly from this approach.”

— Dr Sotirios Bisdas

Dr Sotirios Bisdas, IAG’s Head of Neuro-Oncology and Neurology Clinical Research speaks in the podcast on glioma surveillance imaging. He talks about his recently published paper ‘Glioma surveillance imaging: current strategies, shortcomings, challenges and outlook’ , the various modalities and techniques such as MR perfusion, diffusion, spectroscopy, molecular imaging, as well as multimodality imaging and how he sees the field of clinical research is changing.
