Colorectal cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors, and the morbidity and mortality are increasing gradually over the last years in China. Neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) is currently applied to the treatment of colorectal cancer patients, and it is helpful to improve the prognosis. The sensitivity of patients to nCRT is different due to individual differences. Predicting the therapeutic effect of nCRT is of great importance for the further treatment methods. Texture analysis, as an image post-processing technique, has been more and more utilized in the field of oncologic imaging. This article reviews the application and progress of texture analysis in the therapeutic effect prediction and prognosis of nCRT for colorectal cancer.

Key words: colorectal cancer, texture analysis, neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, prognosis
