你将学到什么

Identify how chemotherapy works in targeting cancer cells and explain the benefits of molecular targeted therapeutics.

Investigate recent developments, and explore potential future developments, in the treatment of cancer.

Identify four main medical imaging techniques and the use of contrast agents.

Develop an awareness of ethical issues related to diagnostic imaging.

课程概况

Discover how chemotherapy has evolved, and some of the breakthroughs and developments chemists have made in the fight against cancer over the last 10 years.

Diagnostic imaging examines how scientists learn about, and treat, the inside of the body without invasive surgery. You’ll explore how modern imaging techniques diagnose problems quickly and safely, and how diseases which may not previously have been picked up are identified.
