Radiomics in Cancer Radiotherapy: a Review

  title={Radiomics in Cancer Radiotherapy: a Review},
  author={Jiwoong Jason Jeong and Arif N Ali and Tian Liu and Hui Mao and Walter J. Curran and Xiaofeng Yang},
  journal={arXiv: Medical Physics},
Radiomics is a nascent field in quantitative imaging that uses advanced algorithms and considerable computing power to describe tumor phenotypes, monitor treatment response, and assess normal tissue toxicity quantifiably. Remarkable interest has been drawn to the field due to its noninvasive nature and potential for diagnosing and predicting patient prognosis. This review will attempt to comprehensively and critically discuss the various aspects of radiomics including its workflow, applications…

A machine learning‐based survival prediction model of high grade glioma by integration of clinical and dose‐volume histogram parameters

A machine learning‐based survival prediction model is proposed by analyzing clinical and dose‐volume histogram parameters, to improve the performance of the risk model in high‐grade glioma patients.

High through-plane resolution CT imaging with self-supervised deep learning

The innovative point of the work is that the proposed deep learning workflow for CT image generation with high through-plane resolution in radiotherapy is self-supervised, meaning that it does not rely on ground truth CT images to train the network.

Classification of lesion specific myocardial ischemia using cardiac computed tomography radiomics

Lesion-specific myocardial ischemia is a common heart disorder and a significant cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. It alters left ventricular myocardial thickness progressively.



Defining a Radiomic Response Phenotype: A Pilot Study using targeted therapy in NSCLC

This pilot study shows that radiomic data before treatment is able to predict mutation status and associated gefitinib response non-invasively, demonstrating the potential of radiomics-based phenotyping to improve the stratification and response assessment between tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) sensitive and resistant patient populations.

Prostate cancer radiomics and the promise of radiogenomics.

The mpMRI radiomics data indicate that the platform would significantly improve the biopsy targeting of prostate habitats through better recognition of indolent versus aggressive disease, thereby facilitating a more personalized approach to prostate cancer management.

Decoding tumour phenotype by noninvasive imaging using a quantitative radiomics approach

The data suggest that radiomics identifies a general prognostic phenotype existing in both lung and head-and-neck cancer, which may have a clinical impact as imaging is routinely used in clinical practice, providing an unprecedented opportunity to improve decision-support in cancer treatment at low cost.

SU-F-R-53: CT-Based Radiomics Analysis of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients Treated with Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy.

Radiomic features have potential to be imaging biomarkers for clinical outcomes that conventional imaging metrics and clinical parameters cannot predict in SBRT patients, such as distant metastasis.

The promise and limits of PET texture analysis

Positron emission tomography texture analysis evaluated intratumoral heterogeneity in the uptake of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose to establish generalizability, robustness, consistency, and limitations of PET textural features.
