Core Tip

Core tip: We aimed to combine the serum index together by several multiparameter method, such as, the binary logistic regression, discriminant analysis, classification tree and artificial neural network analysis. Finally, a multiparameter diagnostic model based on artificial neural network which showed better diagnostic value was built for the early detection of colorectal cancer.
