Description

A co-authored publication along a collabarative team of researchers in Queen's University and Belfast produced a publication regarding the use of imaging in prostate cancer to predict tumour aggressiveness. This work was recognised at an international conference and as a result Sarah Osman the lead author featured on multiple national and local tv, radio and newspaper articles promoting the university and it's links with the Cancer Centre. Attached below is a summary of this media output

A press release on research by Dr Suneil Jain and Dr Sara Osman and Dr Aidan Cole from Centre for Cancer Research & Cell Biology at Queen’s University Belfast about a new a new way to improve the assessment of prostate cancer aggressiveness received 13 pieces of international, national and local media coverage.  Notable outlets that covered the story included BBC Northern Ireland Newsline, BBC Radio Ulster, Medical Xpress, Var India, Biospectrum India and Irish Daily Star.  Media coverage was secured in UK, Northern Ireland, Ireland, United States of America and India.

 

This equated to an estimated reach of 61,149 people (this figure was determined by unique visits to media outlet websites/TV/print per day.)

    DescriptionFeatures extracted from routinely acquired CT images can be used to classify risk among prostate-cancer patients. Using a machine-learning method, researchers in the UK and Netherlands trained prediction models to identify textural and intensity-based features imperceptible to human observers, and to associate them with commonly used measures of disease progression. The technique could complement conventionally used methods and in the long-run could lead to a non-invasive alternative to tissue biopsies for guiding treatment decisions (Int. J. Radiat. Oncol. Biol. Phys. 10.1016/j.ijrobp.2019.06.2504).
