    Abstract: For radiomics to be accepted as a definite tool in medicine, the outputs must be robust, repeatable and reliable. Image processing alters the quality of the input data which might have an impact on the values of the extracted features and ultimately the signatures developed. This study evaluated the magnitude of the influence of various interpolati... Show More

    Abstract: A simulation model is a testing model, that mimics the operation of an existing or proposed system, providing evidence for decision-making by being able to test different scenarios or process changes. Trackability refers to the measurement of the force required to advance the device through a tortuous anatomy with or without the assistance of a gui... Show More
