A Guide to Outcome Modeling In Radiotherapy and Oncology : Listening to the Data Hardback

Edited by Issam El Naqa

Part of the Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering series

Description

This book explores outcome modeling in cancer from a data-centric perspective to enable a better understanding of complex treatment response, to guide the design of advanced clinical trials, and to aid personalized patient care and improve their quality of life.

It contains coverage of the relevant data sources available for model construction (panomics), ranging from clinical or preclinical resources to basic patient and treatment characteristics, medical imaging (radiomics), and molecular biological markers such as those involved in genomics, proteomics and metabolomics.

It also includes discussions on the varying methodologies for predictive model building with analytical and data-driven approaches. This book is primarily intended to act as a tutorial for newcomers to the field of outcome modeling, as it includes in-depth how-to recipes on modeling artistry while providing sufficient instruction on how such models can approximate the physical and biological realities of clinical treatment.

The book will also be of value to seasoned practitioners as a reference on the varying aspects of outcome modeling and their current applications.
