Purpose Radiomic features derived from the texture analysis of different imaging modalities e show promise in lesion characterisation, response prediction, and prognostication in lung cancer patients. The present study aimed to identify an images-based radiomic signature capable of predicting disease-free survival (DFS) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients undergoing surgery.

Purpose To investigate whether imaging features from pre-treatment planning CT scans are associated with overall survival (OS), recurrence-free survival (RFS), and loco-regional recurrence-free survival (LR-RFS) after stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) among non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Patients and methods A total of 92 patients (median age: 73 years) with stage I or IIA NSCLC were qualified for this study. A total dose of 50 Gy in 5 fractions was the standard treatment. Besi...

Abstract Background and purpose In this study we investigated the interchangeability of planning CT and cone-beam CT (CBCT) extracted radiomic features. Furthermore, a previously described CT based prognostic radiomic signature for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients using CBCT based features was validated. Material and methods One training dataset of 132 and two validation datasets of 62 and 94stage I–IV NSCLC patients were included. Interchangeability was assessed by performing a linea...

Imaging with positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) is crucial in the management of cancer because of its value in tumor staging, response assessment, restaging, prognosis and treatment responsiveness prediction. In the last years, interest has grown in texture analysis which provides an “in-vivo” lesion characterization, and predictive information in several malignances including NSCLC; however several drawbacks and limitations affect these studies, especially because of la...

Quantitative analysis of tumour characteristics based on medical imaging is an emerging field of research. In recent years, quantitative imaging features derived from CT, positron emission tomography and MR scans were shown to be of added value in the prediction of outcome parameters in oncology, in what is called the radiomics field. However, results might be difficult to compare owing to a lack of standardized methodologies to conduct quantitative image analyses. In this review, we aim to pres...

Stage classification provides a nomenclature about the anatomic extent of a cancer; a consistent language provides the ability to communicate about a specific patient and about cohorts of patients in clinical studies. This paper summarizes the eighth edition of lung cancer stage classification, which is the worldwide standard as of January 1, 2017. This revision is based on a large global database, a sophisticated analysis, extensive internal validation as well as multiple assessments confirming...

Background: We investigated whether robotic-assisted surgery improves mediastinal lymph node dissection (MLND). Methods: We analyzed patients (pts) who underwent robotic-assisted video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (R-VATS) lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) over 36 months. Perioperative outcomes, tumor histology, numbers, locations, and status of all lymph nodes (LNs), and TNM (tumor, nodal, and metastasis) stage changes were analyzed. Results: One hundred fifty-nine pts had mean...

An accurate staging of a malignant disease is imperative in order to plan pre- and post-operative therapy, define prognosis and compare studies. According to the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons (ESTS) guidelines a systematic lymph node (LN) dissection is recommended in all cases of pulmonary resection for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The current lung cancer staging system considers the lymphatic stations involved but not the number of LNs. Up to date, published scientific studies on...

Abstract Background Radiomics uses a large number of quantitative imaging features that describe the tumor phenotype to develop imaging biomarkers for clinical outcomes. Radiomic analysis of pre-treatment computed-tomography (CT) scans was investigated to identify imaging predictors of clinical outcomes in early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients treated with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). Materials and methods CT images of 113 stage I-II NSCLC patients treated with S...

Radiomics uses high-dimensional sets of imaging features to predict biological characteristics of tumors and clinical outcomes. The choice of the algorithm used to analyze radiomic features and perform predictions has a high impact on the results, thus the identification of adequate machine learning methods for radiomic applications is crucial. In this study we aim to identify suitable approaches of analysis for radiomic-based binary predictions, according to sample size, outcome balancing and t...

Purpose: We investigated whether a fluorine-18-fluorodeoxy glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT)-based radiomics model (RM) could predict the pathological mediastinal lymph node staging (pN staging) in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) undergoing surgery. Methods: A total of 716 patients with a clinicopathological diagnosis of NSCLC were included in this retrospective study. The prediction model was developed in a training cohort that consisted ...

PURPOSE More than 80% of patients with ovarian epithelial cancer (OEC) show complete remission after initial treatment but eventually experience recurrence of the disease. This study aimed to develop a radiomics signature to identify a new prognostic indicator based on preoperative ultrasound imaging. METHODS A total of 111 patients with OEC who underwent transvaginal ultrasound before surgery were included. Of these, 76 were divided into the training cohort and 35 into the test cohort. We defin...

Objectives We aimed at investigating the origin of the correlations between tumor volume and 18F-FDG-PET texture indices in lung cancer. Methods Eighty-five consecutive patients with newly diagnosed non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) underwent a 18F-FDG-PET/CT scan before treatment. Seven phantom spheres uniformly filled with 18F-FDG, and covering a range of activities and volumes similar to that found in lung tumors, were also scanned. Established texture indices were computed for lung tumors a...

This study was designed to estimate the clinical significance of the contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) textural features for prediction of survival in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients receiving targeted therapy (bevacizumab and cetuximab). The LifeX software was used to extract the textural parameters of the tumor lesions in the contrast-enhanced CT. We used the least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (LASSO) Cox regression and random forest method to screen the non-redundant ra...

Abstract Lung cancer is the most common cancer, worldwide, and a major health issue with a remarkable mortality rate. 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (2-[18F]FDG PET/CT) plays an indispensable role in the management of lung cancer patients. Long-established quantitative parameters such as size, density, and metabolic activity have been and are being employed in the current practice to enhance interpretation and improve diagnostic and prognostic va...
