Radiogenomics provide a large-scale data analytical framework that aims to understand the broad multiscale relationships between the complex information encoded in medical images (including computational, quantitative, and semantic image features) and their underlying clinical, therapeutic, and biological associations. As such it is a powerful and increasingly important tool for both clinicians and researchers involved in the imaging, evaluation, understanding, and management of lung cancers. Herein we provide an overview of the growing field of lung cancer radiogenomics and its applications.
