  • Research summary

    The study aims to develop and validate a machine learning classifier to distinguish between COVID-19 and cancer therapy (radiotherapy and immunotherapy) induced lung changes and to develop a prognostic machine learning signature for recurrence of non-small cell lung cancer following radical radiotherapy to stratify appropriate surveillance and onward care, thus minimising unnecessary hospital visits and resource use.\n\nData collected will allow identification of lung pathology in cancer patients related to therapy or COVID-19 induced pneumonitis and the prognostication and stratification of follow-up in NSCLC patients treated with radical thoracic radiotherapy in the COVID-19 era.
