In this work, we propose new prognostic methods that predict 5-year mortality in elderly individuals using chest computed tomography (CT). The methods consist of a classifier that performs this prediction using a set of features extracted from the CT image and segmentation maps of multiple anatomic structures. Preliminary results of this work have been published in ISBI 2017 and Scientific Reports (SREP). After the SREP publication, the work had a press release, which caught the attention of the general media: Fox News, Daily Mail, Wired, The Australian (Section Counting the Decimal Places), Huffington Post, ComputerWorld, The Lead, TechExplore, Medical News Today, Engadget, Inside South Australia, Indaily, The Advertiser, NewsX, Gizmodo (India).
