Neural networks significantly improve cancer staging accuracy

Abstract

Survival prediction is important in cancer because it determines therapy, matches patients for clinical trials, and provides patient information. Is a backpropagation neural network more accurate a t predicting survival, in breast cancer, than the current staging system? For over thirty years, cancer outcome prediction has been based on the pTNM staging… (More)
