Radiomics consists in the automated extraction of a large number of quantitative features from medical images, aiming to identify image biomarkers with predictive/prognostic significance. Various studies obtained promising results on the associations between radiomic features and oncological outcomes. However, heterogeneity of acquisition protocols and image reconstruction methods impairs the robustness of radiomic studies. Furthermore, the biological/physical meaning of most radiomic features is largely unknown and statistical associations were not able to gain understanding of the relationship between imaging and biology. Lots of current research addresses the optimization of the radiomic process to make it more robust, intelligible and applicable in the clinical routine.
