In clinical practice, anisotropic volumetric medical images with low through-plane resolution are commonly used due to short acquisition time and lower storage cost.
We apply this approach to both 2D and 3D CNN architectures with our top model achieving an ROC-AUC value of 0. 74, with a sensitivity of 0. 70 and a specificity of 0. 81 for classifying TSS < 4. 5 hours.
