"In the last twenty years, dynamic prediction models have been extensively used to monitor patient prognosis in survival analysis. Written by one of the pioneers in the area, this book synthesizes these developments in a unified framework. It covers a range of models, including prognostic and dynamic prediction of survival using genomic data and time-dependent information. The text includes numerous examples using real data that is taken from the authors collaborative research. R programs are provided for implementing the methods"--Provided by publisher
