In breast cancer chemotherapy treatment, different alternative strategies can be employed. Clinical researchers working on the optimization of chemotherapy strategies need to analyze the progress of the treatment and to understand how different groups of patients respond to selected therapies. This is a challenging task, because of the multitude of imaging and non-imaging health record data involved. We, hereby, introduce a web-based dashboard that facilitates the comparison and analysis of publicly available breast cancer chemotherapy response data, consisting of a follow-up study of 63 patients. Each patient received one of two available therapeutic strategies and their treatment response was documented. Our dashboard provides an initial basis for clinical researchers working on chemotherapy optimization, to analyze the progress of treatment, and to compare the response of (groups of) patients with distinct treatment characteristics. Our approach consists of multiple linked representations that provide interactive views on different aspects of the available imaging and non-imaging data. To illustrate the functionality of the ChemoExplorer, we conducted a usage scenario that shows the initial results of our work.
