Application of radiomics in ischemic stroke

J Int Med Res. 2024 Apr;52(4):3000605241238141. doi: 10.1177/03000605241238141.


In recent years, radiomics has emerged as a novel research methodology that plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of ischemic stroke. By integrating multimodal medical imaging techniques such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, radiomics offers in-depth insights into aspects such as the extent of brain tissue damage and hemodynamics. These data help physicians to accurately assess patient condition, select optimal treatment strategies, and predict recovery trajectories and long-term prognoses, thereby enhancing treatment efficacy and reducing the risk of complications. With the anticipated further advancements in radiomic technology, this methodology has great potential for expanded applications in the early detection, treatment, and prognosis of ischemic stroke. The present narrative review explores the burgeoning field of radiomics and its transformative impact on ischemic stroke.

Keywords: Radiomics; diagnosis; ischemic stroke; prediction; prognosis; treatment.
