Promises and challenges for the implementation of computational medical imaging (radiomics) in oncology

Participants: Roger Sun, Evangelia I. Zacharaki, Nikos Paragios (in collaboration with Gustave Roussy and Paris Sud University)

Computational medical imaging (also known as radiomics) is a promising and rapidly growing discipline that consists in the analysis of high-dimensional data extracted from medical imaging, to further describe tumour phenotypes. The end goal of radiomics is to determine imaging biomarkers as decision support tools for clinical practice and to facilitate better understanding of cancer biology, allowing the assessment of the changes throughout the evolution of the disease and the therapeutic sequence. We have reviewed [12], [17] the critical issues necessary for proper development of radiomics as a biomarker and for its implementation in clinical practice.
