Radiogenomic Correlations in CT Imaging and MicroRNAs

2019 29 Oct

Finding new molecular biomarkers could help improve the diagnosis and treatment of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). A recent study in Italy compared quantitative parameters obtained from computed tomography texture analysis and microRNAs expression profile of ccRCC looking for correlation between them.   Results of this pilot study indeed...
