Dr Maria Picchio is a Medical Researcher in the Department of Nuclear Medicine of IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele. Her research activity is focused on oncology, being her general research interest the set-up of new non-invasive diagnostic imaging methods to be transferred in clinical practice for the optimization of diagnosis, prognosis and therapy in oncology.
Her main scientific field of interest includes the role of molecular imaging in prostate cancer, as highlighted by the series of publications reflecting a logical path of investigations based on the concept to finally optimize the use of PET molecular Imaging for guiding and monitoring tailored treatments, particularly by using PET molecular imaging in prostate cancer patients.
Her research activity also includes the assessment of clinical and predictive/prognostic impact of hybrid imaging modalities (e.g. PET/CT, PET/MRI) in different malignancies and the development of innovative PET tracers for molecular imaging of cancer.
