    Identifying Parkinson's Patients: A Functional Gradient Boosting Approach.

    Artif Intell Med (2017) 2017 Jun 30;10259:332-337. Epub 2017 May 30.
    Indiana University Bloomington.
    Parkinson's, a progressive neural disorder, is difficult to identify due to the hidden nature of the symptoms associated. We present a machine learning approach that uses a definite set of features obtained from the Parkinsons Progression Markers Initiative(PPMI) study as input and classifies them into one of two classes: PD(Parkinson's disease) and HC(Healthy Control). As far as we know this is the first work in applying machine learning algorithms for classifying patients with Parkinson's disease with the involvement of domain expert during the feature selection process. We evaluate our approach on 1194 patients acquired from Parkinsons Progression Markers Initiative and show that it achieves a state-of-the-art performance with minimal feature engineering.

    Predictive Big Data Analytics: A Study of Parkinson's Disease Using Large, Complex, Heterogeneous, Incongruent, Multi-Source and Incomplete Observations.
    PLoS One 2016 5;11(8):e0157077. Epub 2016 Aug 5.

    Background: A unique archive of Big Data on Parkinson's Disease is collected, managed and disseminated by the Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI). The integration of such complex and heterogeneous Big Data from multiple sources offers unparalleled opportunities to study the early stages of prevalent neurodegenerative processes, track their progression and quickly identify the efficacies of alternative treatments. Many previous human and animal studies have examined the relationship of Parkinson's disease (PD) risk to trauma, genetics, environment, co-morbidities, or life style. Read More

    Early and accurate diagnosis of Parkinson's disease (PD) remains challenging. Neuropathological studies using brain bank specimens have estimated that a large percentages of clinical diagnoses of PD may be incorrect especially in the early stages. In this paper, a comprehensive computer model is presented for the diagnosis of PD based on motor, non-motor, and neuroimaging features using the recently-developed enhanced probabilistic neural network (EPNN).

    Sparse feature learning for multi-class Parkinson's disease classification.
    Technol Health Care 2018 Apr 13. Epub 2018 Apr 13.
    School of Biomedical Engineering, Health Science Center, Shenzhen University, National-Regional Key Technology Engineering Laboratory for Medical Ultrasound, Guangdong Key Laboratory for Biomedical Measurements and Ultrasound Imaging, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China.
    This paper solves the multi-class classification problem for Parkinson's disease (PD) analysis by a sparse discriminative feature selection framework. Specifically, we propose a framework to construct a least square regression model based on the Fisher's linear discriminant analysis (LDA) and locality preserving projection (LPP). This framework utilizes the global and local information to select the most relevant and discriminative features to boost classification performance. Read More
    Comparison of machine learning and semi-quantification algorithms for (I123)FP-CIT classification: the beginning of the end for semi-quantification?

    Background: Semi-quantification methods are well established in the clinic for assisted reporting of (I123) Ioflupane images. Arguably, these are limited diagnostic tools. Recent research has demonstrated the potential for improved classification performance offered by machine learning algorithms. Read More
