It turned out that the corrected NB ("statistical method" upgraded with the prior class probability) was able to significantly outperform Assistant in the primary tumor domain (reaching 50% of classification accuracy) as well as on two other medical diagnostic problems (lymphography diagnosis and the breast cancer recurrence prediction).

Recent advances in indocyanine green lymphography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and lymphoscintigraphy have led to the improved assessment of lymphatic vessels in the patients with extremities of lymphedema.[sup][5] However, the assessment of central lymphatic vessels, such as the thoracic duct (TD), is uncommon.
Percutaneous transabdominal cannulation of the thoracic duct at the cisterna chyli with lymphography and selective distal embolization with coils or tissue adhesive is a safe and minimally invasive technique for the treatment of CL that do not respond to conservative management, with a reported success rate of 45-70% [45, 51].

Zelch and Haaga [13] studied the advantages of CT over lymphography. CT provides a better means for assessing the true extent of disease and permits accurate follow-up assessment of therapy.
We also do experiments on three public datasets: lymphography, SPECT heart, and breast cancer.
