Imaging techniques such as MRI, spectometry, elastography are used to visualize the anatomy, physiology or metabolism of the human body, including the head and the neck. Those techniques allow scientists to see more clearly, to better understand pathological processes, to predict survival, to develop and evaluate various therapies thanks to predictive spectroscopic biomarkers, including as it relates to brain or upper aero-digestive tract cancers (ranking #4 in France by incidence rate).
