A combined budding / T-cell score in pT1 and stage II colorectal cancer(CRC)
Numerous immune cell types are found in CRC and have been linked to improved prognosis in CRC; especially T-cell infiltrates have been extensively examined as a protective biomarker. This proposal aims to build on existing know-how and utilize geometric deep learning methods to create a combined tumor budding/t-cell scoring system.
The results are expected to have a direct impact on patient management and contribute to more precise treatment strategies in patient subgroups.
