About this Research Topic
This Research Topic particularly focuses on the imaging of colorectal cancer, with the goal being to identify imaging biomarkers predictive of therapy resistance. The research topic is very broad with respect to the imaging modalities used to provide insights, though studies introducing novel imaging approaches and novel theranostic probes are especially valued.
All study types are welcome, including but not limited to research articles, observational studies, meta-analyses, reviews, or case reports/series.
Sub-themes for this research topic include but are not limited to:
- Prognostic biomarkers for treatment response using 3D tomographic clinical imaging.
- Fluorescence optical imaging and localized surface plasmon resonance for theranostic probe imaging.
- Automated tumor staging using clinically available imaging.
- Laser-scanning endomicroscopy techniques for in vivo tumor characterization or in situ organoid characterization.
Keywords: Colorectal cancer, Gastroenterology, Cancer, In vivo, In situ
