Radiomics: Converting medical images in minable data
“Radiomics” goes deeper into the analysis of these medical images (e,g. CT, PET, or MRI), and refers to the extraction and analysis of large amounts of advanced quantitative imaging features with high throughput. Converting these images in useful data, will have an impact in personalized medicine, where the treatment can be tailored towards patient specific characteristics.
Choosing the most optimal drug or combination of drugs for a particular patient is crucial for precision medicine. Incorporating knowledge of genomic-drug associations into treatment decision will result in preciser medication and is hoped to improve response to therapy.
