How to create own features - Atlas Characterization - Summary Statistics


(Selva Muthu Kumaran Sathappan) #1

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to generate summary statistics for our Cohort. I understand that you have already provided certain features (CHADS, CHADS2, Age group,ethnicity etc) for generating summary statistics, but is it possible for us to create our own features?

If yes, can you guide/direct me to resource as to how I can create them?

Yes, you can. On the main characterization screen, you see 2 tabs, one for the characterizations, one for the features. Click on the features tab, and create a new feature. From there, you can select ‘Criteria’, and then define your feature using the same constructs as cohort definitions (ie: inclusion rules).

Once you name and save your feature, you can add it to your own characterization project. It will appear in the same list as the preset features, so give it a distinct name so you can find it.
