[…] ed as the weight in kilograms divided by the height in meters squared. WHR and WHtR were calculated as waist circumference divided by hip circumference and height, respectively. The VAI, LAP, AVI and Cindex were calculated as follows [, ]:Males:VAI=WCcm/39.68+1.88×BMIkg/m2×TGmmol/L/1.03×1.31/HDLmmol/LLAP=WCcm–65×TGmmol/LFemales:VAI=WCcm/36.58+1.89×BMIkg/m2×TGmmol/L/0.81×1.52/HDLmmol/LLAP=WCcm–58×T […]

DOI: 10.1177/1176935117746637

[…] ges with segmentation algorithms is that the segments are unique to each patient, which complicates a global analysis of the segment data in a group of patients.We have created a Bioconductor package—CINdex—that can perform a global analysis of the segment data in a group of patients. The CINdex Bioconductor package accepts the segment information from any segmentation algorithm. It calculates a n […]


Factors predicting cardiovascular events in chronic kidney disease patients. Role of subclinical atheromatosis extent assessed by vascular ultrasound

PLoS One
PMCID: 5646852
PMID: 29045466
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0186665

[…] l of 0.05 was used. A concordance index (C index) was estimated for each right censored survival time fitted, by applying Fine and Gray competing risks models, and assessed at 48 months. The function cindex, implemented in the library pec, was used to estimates C indexes for each fitted model. C indexes were used to measure and compare the discriminative power of risk prediction models taking into […]


A comparative study of machine learning methods for time to event survival data for radiomics risk modelling

[…] ithms achieved in general a high prognostic performance on the validation cohort. The best single performances were obtained by the MSR-RF (C-Index: 0.71, 95% confidence interval [0.62–0.83]), the BT-CIndex (C-Index: 0.71, [0.62–0.82]), the BT-Weibull (C-Index: 0.70, [0.60–0.82]) and the BT-COX (C-Index: 0.70, [0.59–0.81]) algorithms, all in combination with the Spearman feature selection method.F […]
