This literature review aims to gather the relevant works published on the topic of Radiomics in Rectal Cancer. Research on this topic has focused on finding predictors of rectal cancer staging and chemoradiation treatment response from medical images. The methods presented may, in principle, aid clinicians with the appropriate treatment planning options. Finding appropriate automatic tools to help in this task is very important, since rectal cancer has been considered one of the most challenging oncological pathologies in recent years.
