Mining Prognosis Index of Brain Metastases Using Artificial Intelligence
AbstractThis study is to identify the optimum prognosis index for brain metastases by machine learning. Seven hundred cancer patients with brain metastases were enrolled and divided into 446 training and 254 testing cohorts. Seven features and seven prediction methods were selected to evaluate the performance of cancer prognosis for each patient. We used mutual information and rough set with particle swarm optimization (MIRSPSO) methods to predict patient’s prognosis with the highest accuracy at area under the curve (AUC) = 0.978 ± 0.06. The improvement by MIRSPSO in terms of AUC was at 1.72%, 1.29%, and 1.83% higher than that of the traditional statistical method, sequential feature selection (SFS), mutual information with particle swarm optimization(MIPSO), and mutual information with sequential feature selection (MISFS), respectively. Furthermore, the clinical performance of the best prognosis was superior to conventional statistic method in accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity. In conclusion, identifying optimal machine-learning methods for the prediction of overall survival in brain metastases is essential for clinical applications. The accuracy rate by machine-learning is far higher than that of conventional statistic methods. View Full-Text
