In this study, the authors aimed to build a dual-energy CT (DECT)-based deep learning radiomics nomogram that could be used for lymph node metastasis prediction in gastric cancer. Ultimately, the DECT-based deep learning radiomics nomogram operated well in predicting lymph node metastasis in gastric cancer.
- This study investigated the value of deep learning dual-energy CT–based radiomics in predicting lymph node metastasis in gastric cancer.
- The dual-energy CT–based radiomics nomogram outweighed the single-energy model and the clinical model.
- The nomogram also exhibited a significant prognostic ability for patient survival and enriched radiomics studies.
