Deciphering Genomic Underpinnings of Quantitative MRI-based Radiomic Phenotypes of Invasive Breast Carcinoma
ApproachWe integrated multi-omics molecular data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data from The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) for 91 breast invasive carcinomas. Statistically significant associations (adjust p-value <= 0.05) have been identified between quantitative MRI phenotypes of tumors (such as tumor size, shape, margin, and blood flow kinetics) and their corresponding molecular profiles (including DNA mutation, miRNA expression, protein expression, pathway gene expression and copy number variation).
ResultsWe provide all the identified associations as a freely available resource for the research community. We expect our analysis results can help (1) discover the genetic mechanism that leads to the formation of specific tumor imaging phenotype and (2) improve MRI techniques as potential non-invasive approaches to probe the cancer molecular status.
