Researchers Develop AI Algorithm to Predict Immunotherapy Response

A team of French researchers have designed an algorithm and developed it to analyze Computed Tomography (CT) scan images, establishing for the first time that artificial intelligence (AI) can process medical images to extract biological and clinical information. The researchers have created a so-called radiomic signature, which defines the level of lymphocyte infiltration of a tumor and provides a predictive score for the efficacy of immunotherapy in the patient.
