  • a Group names refer to the groups defined in Fig. 1 and 2. The performance was measured for each MLP group in terms of sensitivity and specificity. These are defined as follows: sensitivity = TP/(TP + FN) and specificity = TP/(TP + FP), where TP, FN, and FP denote the numbers of true positives, false positives, and false negatives, respectively.
