Radiomics Model Betters Radiologists in Lesions Categorisation

2019 29 Oct

A mammography-based radiomics model, developed by Chinese scientists with the use of machine learning, can distinguish malignant from benign calcifications – with better accuracy than trained radiologists. The radiomic nomogram has the potential to be used as a diagnostic tool in clinical practice, helping to individualise care at reduced costs,... Read more
