Lung cancer screening identifies cancers with heterogeneous behaviors. Some lung cancers will be identified among patients who had prior negative CT screens and upon follow-up scans develop a de novo nodule that was determined to be cancerous. Other lung cancers will be identified among patients who had one or more prior stable positive scans that were not determined to be lung cancer (indeterminate pulmonary nodules), but in follow-up scans was diagnosed with an incidence lung cancer. Using dat...

Gleason scores and ultimately the aggressiveness of prostate cancers determined using transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy procedures could result in incorrect diagnosis in addition to patient discomfort. The Gleason scores determined from TRUS-guided biopsies often differ from immediate repeat biopsies and the biopsies determined following whole excision of the prostate. Our approach presents a highly accurate and automated method for differentiating between the high ≥7 and low Gleason s...

Purpose: To uncover the mechanistic connections between radiomic features, molecular pathways, and clinical outcomes, to develop radiomic based predictors of pathway activation states in individual patients, and to assess whether combining radiomic with clinical and genomic data improves prognostication. Methods: We analyzed two independent lung cancer cohorts totaling 351 patients, for whom diagnostic computed tomography (CT) scans, gene-expression profiles, and clinical outcomes were available...

Two CT features were developed to quantitatively describe lung adenocarcinomas by scoring tumor shape complexity (feature 1: convexity) and intratumor density variation (feature 2: entropy ratio) in routinely obtained diagnostic CT scans. The developed quantitative features were analyzed in two independent cohorts (cohort 1: n = 61; cohort 2: n = 47) of patients diagnosed with primary lung adenocarcinoma, retrospectively curated to include imaging and clinical data. Preoperative chest CTs were s...

Radiogenomics is the whole genome application of radiogenetics, which focuses on uncovering the underlying genetic causes of individual variation in sensitivity to radiation. There is a growing consensus that radiosensitivity is a complex, inherited polygenic trait, dependent on the interaction of many genes involved in multiple cell processes. An understanding of the genes involved in processes such as DNA damage response and oxidative stress response, has evolved toward examination of how gene...

Abstract Background and purpose Radiomics provides opportunities to quantify the tumor phenotype non-invasively by applying a large number of quantitative imaging features. This study evaluates computed-tomography (CT) radiomic features for their capability to predict distant metastasis (DM) for lung adenocarcinoma patients. Material and methods We included two datasets: 98 patients for discovery and 84 for validation. The phenotype of the primary tumor was quantified on pre-treatment CT-scans u...

Tumors exhibit genomic and phenotypic heterogeneity which has prognostic significance and may influence response to therapy. Imaging can quantify the spatial variation in architecture and function of individual tumors through quantifying basic biophysical parameters such as density or MRI signal relaxation rate; through measurements of blood flow, hypoxia, metabolism, cell death and other phenotypic features; and through mapping the spatial distribution of biochemical pathways and cell signaling...

SARS-CoV-2 epidemics has resulted in an unprecedented global health crisis causing a high number of deaths with pneumonia being the most common manifestation. Chest CT is the best imaging modality to identify pulmonary involvement, but unfortunately there are no pathognomonic features for COVID-19 pneumonia, since many other infectious and non-infectious diseases may cause similar alterations. The adoption of artificial intelligence in biomedical imaging has the potential to revolutionize the id...

Abstract null null Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most lethal cancers and carries a dismal prognosis of null null null ∼ null null 10% in five year survival rate. Surgery remains the best option of a potential cure for patients who are evaluated to be eligible for initial resection of PDAC. However, outcomes vary significantly even among the resected patients who were the same cancer stage and received similar treatments. Accurate quantitative preoperative prediction of pr...

Abstract Background To better select patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) for an optimal selection of treatment strategy (i.e. local, systemic or combined treatment) new prognostic models are warranted. In the last decade, radiomics has emerged as a field to create predictive models based on imaging features. This systematic review aims to investigate the current state and potential of radiomics to predict clinical outcomes in patients with CRLM. Methods A comprehensive literature se...

From May 2015 to June 2016, data on 296 patients undergoing 1.5-Tesla MRI for symptoms of acute ischemic stroke were retrospectively collected. Conventional, echo-planar imaging (EPI) and echo train length (ETL)-T2-FLAIR were simultaneously obtained in 118 patients (first group), and conventional, ETL-, and repetition time (TR)-T2-FLAIR were simultaneously obtained in 178 patients (second group). A total of 595 radiomics features were extracted from one region-of-interest (ROI) reflecting the ac...
