Stanford radiology chief discusses sensing and diagnosing cancer before it becomes a disease

In this video, Stanford radiology chief Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD, discusses emerging early cancer detection technologies and imaging strategies. Gambhir explains how he and colleagues are developing new methods for detecting blood-borne substances, or other biomarkers, shed by tumors early enough to identify, locate and eliminate the cancerous growths while they’re still small. He also touches on how as these new early detection technologies are validated they hold the potential to yield benefits in the treatment of cancer and other diseases.
