PURPOSE To investigate use of an artificial neural network (ANN) as a computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) tool for predicting pulmonary embolism (PE) from ventilation-perfusion lung scans and chest radiographs. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data base consisted of cases extracted from the collaborative study of the Prospective Investigation of Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis (PIOPED). Initially, scan findings from 1,064 patients (383 with PE, 681 without PE) were used to train and test the network by… CONTINUE READING
