Abstract

HighlightsMedical image analysis applied to cancer has to date only addressed a very small subset of the “hallmarks of cancer”.The process of developing a technology from the laboratory to routine clinical use where it can be used millions of times is considerably more time consuming and complex than is generally recognized.A number of opportunities and challenges for research over the next decade in oncological image analysis are outlined.Graphical abstractCancer is one of the world's major healthcare challenges and, as such, an important application of medical image analysis. After a brief introduction to cancer, we summarise some of the major developments in oncological image analysis over the past 20 years, but concentrating those in the authors' laboratories, and then outline opportunities and challenges for the next decade.
