Towards More Structure: Comparing TNM Staging Completeness and Processing Time of Text-Based Reports versus Fully Segmented and Annotated PET/CT Data of Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer

Figure 4

Comparison of time needed for staging depending on UICC stage. The median is indicated by a circle, accompanied by its 95% confidence interval. (a) Segmentation time is correlated with UICC stage, whereas the medians of total time and time per lesion show an inverse correlation. (b) Neither R2 nor R1 is related to the UICC stage. R1 = lower estimator of the text-based reporting time. R2 = upper estimator of the text-based reporting time.
