Pioneering pancreatic cancer care

Henry Ford has an established history of advancing cancer care through research. We are often among the first pancreatic cancer programs in the nation to bring new therapies to our patients.

  • In 2010, we were the first program in Michigan to offer NanoKnife® for the treatment of advanced pancreatic cancers. This technology uses electrical pulses to help destroy pancreas tumors.
  • In 2017, we became the first program in the world to offer MRI-guided radiation therapy for inoperable pancreatic tumors.

We are now embarking on our most ambitious effort yet. Our global pancreatic cancer research consortium is bringing together the brightest minds to uncover novel diagnosis and care methods. Learn more about pancreatic cancer clinical trials and research.

Efforts include:

  • Creating biomarker tests that can detect pancreas cancers earlier
  • Devising novel artificial intelligence algorithms that will detect pancreas cancers earlier on imaging tests like CT scans and MRI
  • Developing better patient-directed systemic treatments
