To assess the changes in computed tomography (CT) tumor heterogeneity following neoadjuvant chemotherapy in esophageal cancer. Thirty-one consecutive patients who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy for esophageal cancer were identified. Analysis of primary tumor heterogeneity (texture) was performed on staging and post-chemotherapy CT scans. Image texture parameters (mean grey-level intensity, entropy, uniformity, kurtosis, skewness, standard deviation of histogram) were derived for different… CONTINUE READING
