About this Research Topic
Precision cardio-oncology emphasizes individualized algorithms based on cardiovascular risk, cancer, and cancer treatments, and it considers treatment risks from oncologic care. For instance, patient-specific tumor genetics and therapy-specific cardiovascular risks are useful to redefine tumor classification and dictate cancer treatment algorithms. Artificial intelligence (AI)-based predictive analytics (supervised learning and unsupervised learning) are just available to use in recent decade in capturing dependent patterns between cardiovascular diseases and cancer therapies, which provides transformative analytical routes for prediction and diagnosis of individualized cardio-oncology risks. Notably, interpretable machine learning models show promises from its strengths in accurately identifying and capturing patient-specific complex hidden interaction patterns of longitudinal/multimodal data (omics, ECGs, drugs/therapies) with cardiac dysfunctions for clinical cancer treatment decisions in a methodologically explainable way.
This Research Topic aims to create a forum for current advances of interpretable predictive analytics in AI development to deal with the challenges regarding precision and accuracy of cardiotoxicity risk assessment in cancer survivors. Of special interest are: (I) innovative methodologies that ease the interpretability of AI predictions towards the validation of respective diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic models for side cardiac dysfunctions/complications before, during, or after cancer therapies; and (II) translational medical implications of interpretable AI-based predictive risk analytics for cancer therapy-related cardiac dysfunctions, including novel automatic data processing techniques for massive growth of longitudinal/multimodal heterogeneous data on cardio-oncology, development and configuration of advanced cardiotoxicity workflows or systems that tailored innovative data patterns discovery/visualization, risk predictions, and treatment recommendations in cardio-oncology care.
