Research Summary:

Dr. Milot’s research revolves around the determination of prognoses using novel MRI biomarkers of people with colorectal liver metastases that are treated with advanced surgery.

He is interested in image-guided therapy, with a focus on the development and evaluation of new approaches in the treatment of cancers. He has a special interest in hepatobiliary imaging, as well as intestinal imaging.

He is using new techniques of co-registration of imaging modalities for diagnostic, functional and therapeutic purposes. He has a special interest in imaging that quantifies the elastic properties of tissues for diagnostic purposes and for evaluation of response to therapy.
