Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Radiomics is an emerging field within oncology that extracts valuable information from imaging data to better understand a tumor's biology, behavior, and its surrounding environment. Recent advances have significantly impacted the progress of radionics in oncology, with several major topics emerging at the forefront of research.

Molecular advances in radiomics: The combination of radiomics with molecular level information such as pathomics, genomics, and proteomics has opened new avenues for patient characterization, allowing for more specific, molecularly-targeted therapies. This has enhanced our understanding of tumor heterogeneity and provided deeper insights into the cancer development and progression. It has also shown promise in predicting treatment outcomes and patient prognosis, further personalizing care for each patient.

Integration of multi-omics data with deep-learning: Deep learning has emerged as a crucial driver in the integration of radiomics with multi-omics data. Its ability to automate and optimize the analysis of large, complex datasets has dramatically accelerated the extraction of actionable insights, leading to a holistic understanding of the molecular underpinning of the tumors and thereby advancing the practice of precision oncology.

This Special Issue seeks to highlight the latest achievements in these major topics within the context of cancer management. We encourage submissions focusing on molecular basis of radiomics, QA and phantom design, and multi-omics integration in radiomics research.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
