A team of researchers from the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University will use the $3.2 million grant it received from the National Cancer Institute to develop a predictive analytics-based computerized tissue imaging capability that could identify who among patients with early-stage lung cancer would most benefit from chemotherapy after undergoing surgery. The tool will use a computer to analyze digitized tissue biopsy images to "generate a risk score to then inform the oncologists about the need for chemotherapy," said researcher Anant Madabhushi.
