Researchers from the Naval Medical University in Shanghai, China, developed a nomogram that includes radiomics features as well as CT-reported lymph node status. In testing, the nomogram yielded an area under the curve of 0.81. “The presented radiomics nomogram that incorporates the radiomics signature and CT-reported [lymph node] status is a noninvasive, preoperative prediction tool with favorable predictive accuracy for [lymph node] metastasis in patients with PDAC,” the authors wrote .Read more . . .
A nomogram that utilizes CT radiomics data can preoperatively predict lymph node metastasis in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), according to research published online January 6 in Cancer Imaging.
