Abstract
Recent studies monitoring severity of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) suggested that reliance on only the maximum transverse diameter (Dmax) may be insufficient to predict AAA rupture risk. Moreover, geometric indices, biomechanical parameters, material properties, and patient-specific historical data affect AAA morphology, indicating the need for an integrative approach that incorporates all factors for more accurate estimation of AAA severity. We implemented a machine learning algorithm using 45 features extracted from 66 patients. The model was generated using the J48 decision tree algorithm with the aim of maximizing model accuracy. Three different feature sets were used to assess the prediction rate: i) using Dmax as a single-feature set, ii) using a set of all features, and, lastly iii) using a feature set selected via the BestFirst feature selection algorithm. Our results indicate that BestFirst feature selection yielded the highest prediction accuracy. These results indicate that a combination of several specific parameters that comprehensively capture AAA behavior may enable a suitable assessment of AAA severity, suggesting the potential benefit of machine learning for this application.
