    Abstract
    Purpose
    To assess the utility of a machine-learning approach for predicting liver function based on technetium-99 m-galactosyl serum albumin single photon emission computed tomography /CT.
    Methods
    One hundred twenty-eight patients underwent a 99m Tc-GSA SPECT/CT-based liver function evaluation. All were classified into the low liver-damage or high liver-damage group. Four clinical (age, sex, background liver disease and histological type) and 8 quantitative 99m Tc-GSA SPECT/CT features (receptor index , liver-SUVmax, liver-SUVmean, heart-SUVmax, metabolic volume of liver , total...
