Special Issue Information
Currently, radiology imaging plays a pivotal role in diagnosis and patient follow-up in the oncology field. In fact, thanks to different imaging modalities (X-ray, mammography, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging), there are multiple strategies to detect tumors and help other medical subspecialties to choose the best patient treatment options. In fact, due to the incredibly fast technological radiology innovations, we have improved tumor diagnosis to the next level, moving ever closer to precision medicine.
Innovations such as radiomics, artificial intelligence, and quantitative imaging are perfectly integrated with radiology imaging, and scientific research in the oncology field is necessary to explore all the possibilities we have to improve our diagnostic accuracy in tumor diagnosis and characterization. More comprehensive tumor diagnosis will enable dedicated treatment options such as immunotherapy or target therapy tailored to specific imaging characteristics, to reduce non-responder patients and improve survival.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect innovative research in oncology imaging according to the most recent radiological innovations.
In line with the aim of the journal, we encourage authors to submit original research based on new radiological imaging developments in oncologic imaging.
We invite authors from different radiological imaging subspecialties to share their advancements in knowledge in different types of tumors, with both original works and review articles on tumor diagnosis, characterization, and follow-up.
