Prognostic value of the albumin-bilirubin grade in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and other liver diseases.

Ann Transl Med 2020 Apr;8(8):553

Department of Gastroenterology, Tangdu Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an 710038, China.

One of the most commonly used systems for grading liver function in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients is the Child-Pugh (CP) score. However, the CP scoring system is not without its shortcomings: for example, the cut-off values for the parameters are calculated arbitrarily and the assessment of ascites and hepatic encephalopathy is subjective. More recently, an alternative to traditional CP grade has emerged in the form of albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) grade. Read More

Bridging the "last mile" gap between AI implementation and operation: "data awareness" that matters.

Ann Transl Med 2020 Apr;8(7):501

Dipartimento di Medicina Clinica, Sanità Pubblica, Scienze della Vita e dell'Ambiente, Università degli Studi dell'Aquila, L'Aquila, Italy.

Interest in the application of machine learning (ML) techniques to medicine is growing fast and wide because of their ability to endow decision support systems with so-called artificial intelligence, particularly in those medical disciplines that extensively rely on digital imaging. Nonetheless, achieving a pragmatic and ecological validation of medical AI systems in real-world settings is difficult, even when these systems exhibit very high accuracy in laboratory settings. This difficulty has been called the "last mile of implementation. Read More
