Annual low dose computed tomography (CT) lung screening is currently advised for individuals at high risk of lung cancer (e.g., heavy smokers between 55 and 80 years old). The recommended screening practice significantly reduces all-cause mortality, but the vast majority of screening results are negative for cancer. If patients at very low risk could be identified based on individualized, image-based biomarkers, the health care resources could be more efficiently allocated to higher risk… Expand
Development and Characterization of a Chest CT Atlas
A thoracic atlas built upon a large low dose CT (LDCT) database of lung cancer screening program is proposed and a significant improvement in terms of registration success rate based on manual QA is achieved. Expand

A pipeline specifically designed to identify and resolve issues encountered with large-scale data mining of clinically acquired CT data is created and illustrated and found to be useful and time-saving for research study of clinical data. Expand
Time-distanced gates in long short-term memory networks
The DLSTM approach is shown to be compatible with families of linear, quadratic, exponential, and log-exponential temporal models, and can be readily extended with other temporal dependence interactions while hardly increasing overall model complexity. Expand
Deep multi-path network integrating incomplete biomarker and chest CT data for evaluating lung cancer risk
The proposed M3Net framework provides an effective way to integrate image and non-image data in the context of missing information and suggests that integrating subjects with missing either CDEs/biomarker or CT imaging features can contribute to the discriminatory power of the model. Expand


Lung Cancer Detection using Co-learning from Chest CT Images and Clinical Demographics
A 3D attention-based deep convolutional neural net (DCNN) is proposed to identify lung cancer from the chest CT scan without prior anatomical location of the suspicious nodule, and to improve upon the non-invasive discrimination between benign and malignant. Expand

A Multi-Task deep learning framework with a novel Margin Ranking loss (referred as MTMR-Net) for automated lung nodule analysis achieved competitive classification performance and more accurate attribute scoring over the state-of-the-arts. Expand
Pan-Renal Cell Carcinoma classification and survival prediction from histopathology images using deep learning
This study demonstrates how deep learning framework can be used for an automatic classification of Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) subtypes, and for identification of features that predict survival outcome from digital histopathological images. Expand
Evaluate the Malignancy of Pulmonary Nodules Using the 3-D Deep Leaky Noisy-OR Network
A 3-D deep neural network for automatic diagnosing lung cancer from computed tomography scans that selects the top five nodules based on the detection confidence, evaluates their cancer probabilities, and combines them with a leaky noisy-OR gate to obtain the probability of lung cancer for the subject.
