Identifying historical records of patients who are similar to the new patient could help to retrieve similar reference cases for predicting the clinical outcome of the new patient. Amongst different potential applications, this study illustrates use of patient similarity in predicting survival of patients suffering from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated with locoregional chemotherapy. This study used 14 similarity measures derived from relevant clinical and imaging parameters to classify… CONTINUE READING
