Recursive partitioning analysis of 518 patients receiving palliative radiation to metastatic disease at UCSF categorizes patients into 1 of 5 classes based on outpatient/inpatient status, ECOG status, age, and presence of liver mets in order to predict 30-day mortality, ranging from 13% (class 1) to 59% (class 5). If someone could make this into an app, it could be a really useful sanity check prior to recommending planning-intensive ablative palliative radiation approaches. | Wu, JAMA Netw Open 2021
