This study shows that the combination of CT imaging and clinical factors pre-neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for advanced adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction (AEG) could help stratify potential responsiveness to NAC, which can also result in helping to provide a basis for clinicians to develop more customized treatment plans for patients.
- Radiomics method can predict that AEG patients can achieve pCR after NAC.
- The combination of radiomics and clinical factors can improve the predicting performance.
- Radiomics–clinical model can stratify patients according to potential responsiveness to NAC.
- Radiomics–clinical model can help clinicians to develop individualized and precise treatment plans.
