Developing a Raman spectroscopy-based tool to stratify patient response to pre-operative radiotherapy in rectal cancer - dataset

Chloe Kirkby, Julia Gala de Pablo, Emma Tinkler-Hundal, Henry Wood, Stephen Evans & Nicholas West
Rectal cancer patients frequently receive pre-operative radiotherapy (RT), prior to surgical resection. However, colorectal cancer is heterogeneous and the degree of tumour response to pre operative RT is highly variable. There are currently no clinically approved methods of predicting response to RT, and a significant proportion of patients will show no clinical benefit, despite enduring the side-effects. This dataset contains the raw and pre-processed Raman spectra taken from the biopsy specimens of 20 rectal cancer...
