Featured Review: Radiogenomics of breast cancer using dynamic contrast enhanced MRI and gene expression profiling

Featured ReviewImaging techniques can provide information about tumors non-invasively and can provide information about their underlying genetic makeup. Correlating image-based phenotypes (radiomics) with genomic analyses is an emerging area of research commonly referred to as “radiogenomics." In this review, Albert C. Yeh et al. discuss using an automated, quantitative radiomics platform on magnetic resonance (MR) breast imaging to infer underlying activity of relevant gene pathways derived from RNA sequencing of invasive breast cancers prior to therapy.

Top 10 peer reviewers of 2018

A peer-reviewed journal would not survive without the generous time and insightful comments of the reviewers, whose efforts often go unrecognized. Although final decisions are always editorial, they are greatly facilitated by the deeper technical knowledge, scientific insights, understanding of social consequences, and passion that reviewers bring to our deliberations. For these reasons, the Editors and staff of Cancer Imaging would like to publicly acknowledge our Top 10 peer reviewers of 2018: 

Ravikanth Balaji, Apollo Speciality Hospital, India
Arturo Chiti, Humanitas Cancer Center, Italy
Stefan Diederich, Marien Hospital, Germany 
Ralf Stefan Eschbach, LMU Munich, Germany
Jeffrey Guenette, Brigham and Women's Hospital, USA
Shelley Henderson, Ninewells Hospital, UK
Wolfgang Schima, KH Goettlicher Heiland, Austria
Helmut Schoellnast, Medical University of Graz, Austria
Richard Thomas, Brigham and Women's Hospital, USA
Asuncion Torregrosa, Hospital Universitari i Politècnic la Fe, Spain

We are delighted to announce that “Primary carcinosarcoma of the liver: imaging features and clinical findings in six cases and a review of the literature” was the top cited article published in Cancer Imaging of 2018.

Congratulations to all of the authors involved with this research: Jing Li, Pan Liang, Dandan Zhang, Jie Liu, Hongkai Zhang, Jinrong Qu and Jianbo Gao.

Featured: How I read Cancer Imaging Studies: The Master Class Series

Master Class SeriesSurprisingly, in contrast to the literature regarding the outcomes of imaging, the methods that underpin the generation of an imaging report and how to communicate the findings cogently to referring clinicians remain something of a ‘black box'. In this thematic series, experts across various modalities detail their approach to reporting scans in particular disease settings.

Editor's quote

A major focus of Prof Rodney Hicks' (Co-Editor-in-Chief of Cancer Imaging) clinical research has been to assess the impact of PET on patient management and prognostic stratification. 

"A few years ago I changed the name of my department from Diagnostic Imaging to Cancer Imaging since it occurred to me that little of what we do is diagnostic.  Increasingly, the role of imaging in cancer is in selecting, planning and monitoring treatment.  The challenge of imaging science is to establish our techniques as prognostic and predictive biomarkers and to show that our results improve patient outcomes"

Prof Rodney Hicks, Co-Editor-in-Chief, Cancer Imaging
