AbstractBackground: Size-based assessments are inaccurate indicators of tumor response in soft-tissue sarcoma (STS), motivating the requirement for new response imaging biomarkers for this rare and heterogeneous disease. In this study, we assess the test-retest repeatability of radiomic features from MR diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and derived maps of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in retroperitoneal STS and compare baseline repeatability with changes in radiomic features following radiotherapy (RT). Materials and methods: Thirty patients with retroperitoneal STS received an MR examination prior to treatment, of whom 23/30 were investigated in our repeatability analysis having received repeat baseline examinations and 14/30 patients were investigated in our post-treatment analysis having received an MR examination after completing pre-operative RT. One hundred and seven radiomic features were extracted from the full manually delineated tumor region using PyRadiomics. Test-retest repeatability was assessed using an intraclass correlation coefficient (baseline ICC), and post-radiotherapy variance analysis (post-RT-IMS) was used to compare the change in radiomic feature value to baseline repeatability. Results: For the ADC maps and DWI images, 101 and 102 features demonstrated good baseline repeatability (baseline ICC > 0.85), respectively. Forty-three and 2 features demonstrated both good baseline repeatability and a high post-RT-IMS (>0.85), respectively. Pearson correlation between the baseline ICC and post-RT-IMS was weak (0.432 and 0.133, respectively). Conclusions: The ADC-based radiomic analysis shows better test-retest repeatability compared with features derived from DWI images in STS, and some of these features are sensitive to post-treatment change. However, good repeatability at baseline does not imply sensitivity to post-treatment change.
