Al's Comment:

 The MRI lecture was a little too technical at some points - just gloss over that as it all came together by the end, and showed how important this imaging technique is. It should be available at the larger centers. You can ask your doctors about it. They can not go back and reconstruct it from old images - you need to request it before the scan.  It can tell much sooner if a treatment is working or not, and if there is a tumor recurrence or necrosis / pseudoprogression. 

The clinical trial lecture was fascinating. The speaker goes through the history of the drug, explaining his thought process on how he chose this drug to try in people. He shows results in animals which are very good.  I think this treatment (Gallium Matolate) has the potential to make a big impact.
