Prof. Hadassa Degani
Prof. Hadassa Degani studied the mechanisms that supply cancerous tumors with oxygen and nutrients. Using magnetic resonance imaging, she developed a new technique, called 3TP, that produces an image of blood vessels feeding the tumor and makes it possible to distinguish between malignant and benign growths.


In 2003, the non-invasive 3TP method received FDA clearance for use in the detection of breast and prostate cancer. It enables doctors to distinguish between malignant tumors and benign lumps by scanning instead of cutting.
