Molecular analysis of tumour samples has highlighted pathways that are implicated in cancer progression. However, less is known about how activation of these pathways are manifested in the tumour microenvironment. The use of positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging to assess tumour physiology/function can shed light on how the tumour microenvironment responds to therapy, disease progression or genetic changes.
