Early Stage Lung Cancer Prediction
Lung cancer is the most common cancer and leading cause of cancer death worldwide. In 2020, the new cases are estimated to be 228,820, which is 12. 7% of all new cancer cases. An estimate of 135,720 people will die to this cancer, which is 22.4% death of all cancer deaths. Most patient are diagnosed at late stage causing effective treatment would be difficult. Early detection would a key factor to reducing mortality rate of lung cancer.
The goal of the project is to use Taiwan population-wide NHI EMR (electronic claim records) to build a deep learning algorithm to derive the lung cancer risk prediction model, include deriving prediction models for smokers, female nonsmokers, and subjects with immune-related comorbidities (a set of inclusion criteria to be defined).
