Table 1 Performance comparison of the proposed method and human clinicians on the test dataset. AUROC is the area under receiver operating characteristic curve, F1 score is the harmonic mean of the precision and recall, PPV is the positive predictive value, and NPV is the negative predictive value. The performance of DeNTNet was measured with various operating point settings.
