DR. MORAN ARTZI (PhD)
Dr. Artzi's research is focused on quantitative tissue characterization and classification based on advanced methods for MR acquisition and analysis. Studies are conducted on healthy subjects and patients with pathologies of the central nervous system. The aim of her research is to improve patient assessment, therapy response monitoring and prediction of clinical outcomes.
DR. Artzi is an associate investigator of the #Advanced Brain Imaging research team at the TLV-CBF.
Brain Tumor Classification
MRI is the established method for assessment of patients with brain tumors. However, the response assessment in neuro-oncology (RANO) criteria currently rely on conventional imaging, which provides only a rough estimation of enhancing and non-enhancing lesion volumes. These parameters fail to reliably distinguish between different tissue components such as tumor progression versus therapy response, and treatment ramifications are influenced by the correct understanding of the nature of the lesion.
Our studies aim to improve therapy response assessment in patients with brain tumors by providing quantitative and reliable tools; using advanced methods of MR data acquisition, state of the art image processing and machine learning algorithms for data analysis
