摘要

Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of automatic Stanford classification of classic aortic dissection (AD) using a 2-step hierarchical neural network. Methods: Between 2015 and 2019, 130 arterial phase series (57 type A, 43 type B, and 30 negative cases) in aortic CTA were collected for the training and validation. A 2-step hierarchical model was built including the first step detecting AD and the second step predicting the probability (0–1) of Stanford types. The model’s performance was evaluated with an off-line prospective test in 2020. The sensitivity and specificity for Stanford type A, type B, and no AD (Sens A, B, N and Spec A, B, N, respectively) and Cohen’s kappa were reported. Results: Of 298 cases (22 with type A, 29 with type B, and 247 without AD) in the off-line prospective test, the Sens A, Sens B, and Sens N were 95.45% (95% confidence interval [CI], 77.16–99.88%), 79.31% (95% CI, 60.28–92.01%), and 93.52% (95% CI, 89.69–96.25%), respectively. The Spec A, Spec B, and Spec N were 98.55% (95% CI, 96.33–99.60%), 94.05% (95% CI, 90.52–96.56%), and 94.12% (95% CI, 83.76–98.77%), respectively. The classification rate achieved 92.28% (95% CI, 88.64–95.04%). The Cohen’s kappa was 0.766 (95% CI, 0.68–0.85; p < 0.001). Conclusions: Stanford classification of classic AD can be determined by a 2-step hierarchical neural network with high sensitivity and specificity of type A and high specificity in type B and no AD. Key Points: • The Stanford classification for aortic dissection is widely adopted and divides it into Stanford type A and type B based on the ascending thoracic aorta dissected or not. • The 2-step hierarchical neural network for Stanford classification of classic aortic dissection achieved high sensitivity (95.45%) and specificity (98.55%) of type A and high specificity in type B and no aortic dissection (94.05% and 94.12%, respectively) in 298 test cases. • The 2-step hierarchical neural network demonstrated moderate agreement (Cohen’s kappa: 0.766, p < 0.001) with cardiovascular radiologists in detection and Stanford classification of classic aortic dissection in 298 test cases.
