ISHLT: Derivation of a Bayesian Network Model from an Existing Risk Score Calculator for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Purpose: We propose an alternative approach to the extensively validated REVEAL risk score calculator using Bayesian network (BN) modeling. We derived a BN model with the same variables and discretization cut points as the REVEAL risk score calculator and data from the REVEAL registry. This study compared the performance and relative impact of the variables […]
