My apologies for the bare appearance. icnet.uk is undergoing deep maintenance.
Yup, I’m putting some of my own cancer research from earlier in my career, onto the web, because its highly visual educational material.
Hello as well
. I like to joke, but it’s hard to joke about cancer. But research is fair game. I once did a study in which one third of subjects were cured, one third of subjects died, and the third rat ran away.
Dr. Halls has a few other websites, the oldest being www.halls.md (which has some useful medical content, including an important Breast Cancer Risk Calculator).
Dr. Halls is still an active full-time radiologist who does all modalities including mammography and has a collection of information about types of breast cancer and its diagnosis, on this website breast-cancer.ca.
The first half of Dr. Halls career was at the Cross Cancer Institute, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Some of his research involved developing MRI techniques for breast cancer staging, of axilla lymph nodes and lymphadenopathy and internal mammary lymph node locations and sizes. Hopefully that will find it way onto this website here, in future months. Some very beautiful MRI images, if you click on those links above.
