Computerized texture analysis of pulmonary nodules in pediatric patients with osteosarcoma: Differentiation of pulmonary metastases from non-metastatic nodules.
작성일 20-02-04 10:47
To retrospectively evaluate the value of computerized 3D texture analysis for differentiating pulmonary metastases from non-metastatic lesions in pediatric patients with osteosarcoma.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
This retrospective study was approved by the institutional review board. The study comprised 42 pathologically confirmed pulmonary nodules in 16 children with osteosarcoma who had undergone preoperative computed tomography between January 2009 and December 2014. Texture analysis was performed using an in-house program. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify factors for differentiating metastatic nodules from non-metastases. A subgroup analysis was performed to identify differentiating parameters in small non-calcified pulmonary nodules. The receiver operator characteristic curve was created to evaluate the discriminating performance of the established model.
Pulmonary metastases from osteosarcoma could be differentiated from non-metastases by using computerized texture analysis. Higher mean attenuation and larger diameter were significant predictors for pulmonary metastases, while higher mean attenuation was a significant predictor for small non-calcified pulmonary metastases.
