Abstract Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is a well-established magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique used for studying microstructural changes in the white matter. As with many other imaging modalities, DTI images suffer from technical between-scanner variation that hinders comparisons of images across imaging sites, scanners and over time. Using fractional anisotropy (FA) and mean diffusivity (MD) maps of 205 healthy participants acquired on two different scanners, we show that the DTI meas...

Radiomics is the high-throughput mining of quantitative image features from standard-of-care medical imaging to enable data to be extracted and applied within clinical-decision support systems. The process of radiomics is described and its pitfalls, challenges, opportunities, and capacity to improve clinical decision making. The radiomics field requires standardized evaluation of scientific findings and their clinical relevance. This review provides guidance for investigations to meet this urgen...

Abstract Objectives One of the main changes in the 8th edition of the TNM Classification for head and neck tumors is the inclusion of extracapsular spread (ECS) as a criterion for evaluating the regional extension, both clinical (cN) and pathological (pN). The objective of our study is to evaluate the prognostic capacity derived from the inclusion of the ECS in the pathological classification of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients treated with a neck dissection, as established...

Aim The study aimed to investigate whether textural features of rectal cancer on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can predict long term survival in patients treated with long-course chemoradiotherapy. Method Textural analysis (TA) using a filtration-histogram technique of T2-weighted pre- and six-week post chemoradiotherapy MRI was undertaken using TexRAD, a proprietary software algorithm. Regions of interest enclosing the largest cross-sectional area of the tumour were manually delineated on th...

The high-throughput extraction of quantitative information from medical images, known as radiomics, has grown in interest due to the current necessity to quantitatively characterize tumour heterogeneity. In this context, texture analysis, consisting of a variety of mathematical techniques that can describe the grey-level patterns of an image, plays an important role in assessing the spatial organization of different tissues and organs. For these reasons, the potentiality of texture analysis in t...

Tumour heterogeneity in cancers has been observed at the histological and genetic levels, and increased levels of intra-tumour genetic heterogeneity have been reported to be associated with adverse clinical outcomes. This review provides an overview of radiomics, radiogenomics, and habitat imaging, and examines the use of these newly emergent fields in assessing tumour heterogeneity and its implications. It reviews the potential value of radiomics and radiogenomics in assisting in the diagnosis ...

Abstract This study compared the diagnostic ability of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasonography (US), and positron emission tomography/CT (PET/CT) for extracapsular spread. MEDLINE, EMBASE, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Chinese Biomedical Literature Database, and Sciencepaper Online databases were searched. The mean sensitivity of CT was 0.77, specificity was 0.85, positive likelihood ratio (LR+) was 4.839, negative likelihood ratio (LR−) was 0.287, ...

To review the diagnostic performance of CT and MRI for detecting extranodal extension (ENE) in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients. MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched up to October 7, 2019. Studies that evaluated the diagnostic performance of CT and/or MRI for detecting ENE in HNSCC patients were included. A 2 × 2 table was reconstructed for each study. Pooled sensitivity and specificity were calculated using the bivariate model and hierarchical summary receiver operat...

BACKGROUND To assess the effect of 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in the pretherapeutic staging of N classification, detection rate of distant metastases, and second primaries. METHODS Retrospective study on patients with head and neck carcinoma. We compared pretherapeutic N classification by ultrasound, computed tomography (CT)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and FDG-PET-CT/MRI. RESULTS A change in the N classification due to FDG-PET-CT/MRI was observed in 116 pa...

Abstract This review aims at simplifying the relevant imaging anatomy, guiding the optimal imaging method and highlighting the key imaging findings that influence prognosis and management of oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Early OSCC can be treated with either surgery alone while advanced cancers are treated with a combination of surgery, radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy. Considering the complex anatomy of the oral cavity and its surrounding structures, imaging plays an indispensable...

Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) can be used to evaluate deep medullary veins (DMVs). This study aimed to apply texture analysis on SWI to evaluate developmental and ischemic changes of DMV in infants. A total of 38 infants with normal brain MRI (preterm [n = 12], term-equivalent age [TEA] [n = 18], and term [n = 8]) and seven infants with ischemic injury (preterm [n = 2], TEA [n = 1], and term [n = 4]) were included. Regions of interests were manually drawn to include DMVs. First-order tex...
