Dataset notes

  • The dates in this dataset are date shifted by a random amount. All dates for any particular patient are shifted by the same amount in order to preserve the time duration between events in a patient’s treatment.
  • Male patients made up less than 2% of biopsy patients and were excluded from the dataset.

Comorbidities

comorbidities.csv

Comorbidities are those included in the Charleson comorbity index (CCI), and were obtained from patient charts using ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. Comorbidites were only included if patients were diagnosed in the two years before the biopsy date.
For each included comorbidity, 0: does not have diagnosis, 1: has diagnosis.
