Professor Tony Ng heads the Kings College London and University College London Comprehensive Cancer Imaging Centre. At the Centre, Professor Ng and his team are using a wide range of sophisticated imaging techniques to visualise tumours. They are using these approaches to find molecular ‘flags’, called biomarkers, which can be used to predict how a tumour might respond to cancer treatment and track how well it is working.

One of the main projects at the centre is the development of an imaging system for brain tumours, as part of a new operating theatre. Using small amounts of tiny radioactive particles, this system is able to create detailed pictures of brain tumours that will help doctors decide how best to treat each patient.

Cancer researchers, imaging scientists and doctors are all working together at the Centre to deliver state-of-the-art imaging techniques that can be used in the clinic.

Professor Ng currently leads the Imaging sub-section of the KCL Experimental Cancer Centre awarded by Cancer Research UK/Department of Health. He is also the Principal Investigator and Coordinator for the KCL-UCL Comprehensive Cancer Imaging Centre (one of four centres funded …
