Analysis of Doppler Ultrasound in Predicting Malignancy.

A while back I happened to come across data from a hospital which consisted of Doppler ultrasound data of patients at the hospital. The data consisted of technical parameters related to the ultrasound and finally, a “final diagnosis” of the patient, which could be either “Malignant” or “Benign”. The doctor who provided the data asked if I could see any trend in the technical parameters in predicting the final diagnosis.

I decided to have a go at it since it would be a good statistics refresher and some practice in R.

I found a bunch of interesting observations in the data and at the risk of tiring myself by explaining it all twice, I’m just going to point to the github repository of this project. All the details are in the pdf file in that repository.
