The Cambridge Science Festival is running until March 26, and scientists from the Cancer Research UK and EPSRC Imaging Centre – based in Cambridge and Manchester – will be on hand at an event on the final day to talk about the latest developments in cancer imaging. In a series of guest posts ahead of the event, our scientists explore what the future holds for 3 different ways to scan or take pictures of tumours. The final post in the series, from PhD student Victoria Tessyman, looks at PET imaging.
