HealthMyne, a pioneer in applied radiomics, announced today that peer-reviewed research recently published in the journal Cancers has demonstrated the ability of its radiomics technology to identify biomarkers that predict whether patients with lung adenocarcinoma would benefit from immunotherapy.

Semi-automatic lesion identification: (A) Manual ROI indication. In blue, it is possible to observe the axes that cross the lesion manually delineated by the radiologist on a plane of the MPR. The intensity of the lesion boundary (estimated) is represented with a red outline. (B) Additional axes can be dragged onto other orthogonal MPR views. From left to right, it is possible to observe the initial long axis outlined by the radiologist and the 2D contours on the axial, coronal and sagittal views of the lesion used as a starting point for the RPM algorithms. (C) Resulting 3D contour of the lesion (in blue).

An illustration based on simulations by Rice University engineers shows a gadolinium ion (blue) in water (red and white), with inner-sphere water -- the water most affected by the gadolinium -- highlighted. The researchers’ models of gadolinium in water show there’s room for improvement in compounds used as contrast agents in clinical magnetic resonance imaging.
