In this study, the authors aimed to improve the prediction of patients’ prognosis of myxoid/round cell liposarcomas (MRC-LPS) using a radiomics approach. 35 patients with MRC-LPS were included in this retrospective study. They found that the best prediction of metastatic relapse-free survival for MRC-LPS was achieved by combining the radiomics score to relevant radiological features.

Key points

  • Fourteen radiomics features quantifying shape and heterogeneity of myxoid/round cell liposarcomas on T2-WI were associated with metastatic relapse in univariate analysis.
  • A radiomics score based on 3 selected and weighted radiomics features was a strong and independent prognostic factor for metastatic relapse-free survival.
  • The best prediction of metastatic relapse-free survival for myxoid/round cell liposarcomas was achieved by combining the radiomics score to relevant radiological features.
