Generating Novel Insights through AI and Multimodal Analysis
Thanks to new technologies and computing capacities, multimodality holds the potential to increase precision in diagnosis, prognosis and treatment decisions. Dr. Menu will apply this to a large-scale multi-centric study where the deep-learnings analysis of the aggregation of multimodal data (clinical, biological, genomic, and radiomics data) is used to identify predictive signatures associated with response to treatment and prognosis of patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.
