Featured Article: 18F-FET PET radiomics-based survival prediction in glioblastoma patients receiving radio(chemo)therapy

Glioblastoma has a poor prognosis due to the disease’s complex pathogenesis. Survival prediction based on images acquired prior to treatment may allow for a more personalised approach to care. The article by Wiltgen, T., Fleischmann, D.F., et al. has found that 18F-FET PET prior to radiation provides relevant information for survival prediction in glioblastoma patients.

Call for papers on artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence in Cancer imaging and diagnosisWe are pleased to announce a new cross-journal thematic series on ‘’Artificial intelligence in Cancer imaging and diagnosis" to help bring together the latest research on the application of artificial intelligence in this field.

The thematic series is now open for submission of original research and review articles. Please click here to submit your manuscript to this series.

Aims and scope

Radiation Oncology encompasses all aspects of research that impacts on the treatment of cancer using radiation. It publishes findings in molecular and cellular radiation biology, radiation physics, radiation technology, and clinical oncology.

The field of radiation oncology covers the integration of radiation therapy into multimodal treatment approaches. Radiation Oncology provides an open access forum for researchers and clinicians involved in the management and treatment of cancer patients, bringing together the latest research and advances in the field. Advances in treatment technology, as well as improved understanding of the underlying biological resistance mechanisms, will further strengthen the role of radiation oncology.
