- Response to mesenchymal-epithelial transition (MET) inhibitors in NSCLC with mesenchymal-epithelial transition gene (MET) exon 14 skipping (METex14) has fueled molecular screening efforts and the search for optimal therapies. However, further work is needed to refine the clinicopathologic and prognostic implications of METex14 skipping.
- Lung adenocarcinomas (ADCs) with a micropapillary pattern have been reported to have a poor prognosis. However, few studies have reported on the imaging-based identification of a micropapillary component, and all of them have been subjective studies dealing with qualitative computed tomography variables. We aimed to explore imaging phenotyping using a radiomics approach for predicting a micropapillary pattern within lung ADC.
