The Application Of Radiomics In Breast MRI: A Review
Breast cancer has been a worldwide burden of women’s health. Although concerns have been raised for early diagnosis and timely treatment, the efforts are still needed for precision medicine and individualized treatment. Radiomics is a new technology with immense potential to obtain mineable data to provide rich information about the diagnosis and prognosis of breast cancer. In our study, we introduced the workflow and application of radiomics as well as its outlook and challenges based on published studies. Radiomics has the potential ability to differentiate between malignant and benign breast lesions, predict axillary lymph node status, molecular subtypes of breast cancer, tumor response to chemotherapy, and survival outcomes. Our study aimed to help clinicians and radiologists to know the basic information of radiomics and encourage cooperation with scientists to mine data for better application in clinical practice.
