NCTN Assessment on Current Applications of Radiomics in Oncology

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys. 2019 Jun 1;104(2):302-315. doi: 10.1016/j.ijrobp.2019.01.087. Epub 2019 Jan 31.


Radiomics is a fast-growing research area based on converting standard-of-care imaging into quantitative minable data and building subsequent predictive models to personalize treatment. Radiomics has been proposed as a study objective in clinical trial concepts and a potential biomarker for stratifying patients across interventional treatment arms. In recognizing the growing importance of radiomics in oncology, a group of medical physicists and clinicians from NRG Oncology reviewed the current status of the field and identified critical issues, providing a general assessment and early recommendations for incorporation in oncology studies.
