Topical Collection in Cancers: Radiomics and Cancers
Different radiological imaging methods are used in oncology to investigate different regions of the body for detection of primary tumors and metastatic spread, i.e., for tumor staging. Nowadays, imaging can also characterize several lesions and predict their histopathological features. Furthermore, imaging can predict tumor behavior and prognosis.
Radiomics represents a novel imaging analysis technique, which consists of extracting numerous quantitative features using automated or semi-automated software. Radiomics is based on the hypothesis that mineable data can be extracted from medical images and provide additional information on gene protein and tumor phenotype, which can then be used for patient care.
The purpose of the present Special Issue is to analyze the possible relationships between different histopathological features and radiomics parameters in several malignancies.
