The role of quantitative imaging in brain tumour diagnosis

Medical imaging has been always a qualitative field, however, quantitative image analysis of tumour characteristics based on medical imaging is an emerging field of research. In recent years, quantitative imaging features derived from several imaging techniques such as PET, MRI or CT were shown to be of added value in the prediction of outcome parameters in oncology. Compared to qualitative analysis, radiomics could provide quantitative data which could be used to increase the quality of tumour diagnosis and treatment strategies.
