However, these unnecessary deaths can be prevented by identifying the risk factors and intervening earlier with those at risk. Numerous empirical studies have exhaustively documented multiple suicide risk factors. In addition, many evidence-based approaches have employed machine learning models to diagnose vulnerable groups, a task that would otherwise be challenging if only human cognition were employed. To date, to the best of our knowledge, no research has been conducted on COVID-19-related suicide prediction.</span></p><p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">OBJECTIVES: This research, aims to develop a machine-learning model capable of identifying individuals who are contemplating suicide due to COVID-19-related complexities and assessing the potential risk factors.</span></p><p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">METHODS: We trained a gradient-boosting model based on tree-based learners on 10067 data consisting of 76 features, which were primarily responses to socio-demographic, behavioural, and psychological questions about COVID-19 and suicidal behaviours.</span></p><p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">RESULTS: The final model predicted individuals at risk with an auROC score of 0.77 and a 95% confidence interval of 0.77 to 0.88.

Rumale <p>Lung Cancer, due to a lower survival rate, is a deadly disease as compared to other cancers. The prior determination of the lung cancer tends to increase the survival rate. Though there are numerous lung cancer detection techniques, they are all insufficient to detect accurate cancer due to variations in the intensity of the CT scan image. For more accuracy in segmentation of CT images, the proposed Elephant-Based Bald Eagle Optimization (EBEO) algorithm is used. This proposed research concentrates on developing a lung nodule detection technique based on Deep learning. To obtain an effective result, the segmentation process will be carried out using the proposed algorithm. Further, the proposed algorithm will be utilized to tune the hyper parameter of the deep learning classifier to increase detection accuracy. It is expected that the proposed state-of-art method will exceed all conventional methods in terms of detection accuracy due to the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm. This survey will be helpful for the healthcare research communities with sufficient knowledge to understand the concepts of the EBEO algorithm and the Deep Convolutional Neural Network for improving the overall human healthcare system.</p> 2024-01-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Ajit Narendra Gedem, Aniruddha S.

To properly diagnose and treat DR, preprocessing of picture methods and precise prediction models are essential. With the help of numerous well-liked filters and a Deep CNN (Convolutional Neural Network) model, the comprehensive method for DR image preparation and prognosis presented in this research is described. Using the filters that focus boundaries and contours in the ocular pictures is the first step in the initial processing stage. This procedure tries to find anomalies linked to DR. By the usage of filters, the excellence of pictures can be developed and minimize disturbances, preserving critical information. The Deep CNN algorithm has been trained to generate forecasts on the cleaned retinal pictures following the phase of preprocessing. The filters efficiently eliminate interference without sacrificing vital data. Convolutional type layers, pooling type layers, and fully associated layers are used in the CNN framework, which was created especially for image categorization tasks, to acquire data and understand the relationships associated with DR.</p><p>OBJECTIVES: Using image preprocessing techniques such as the Sobel, Wiener, Gaussian, and non-local mean filters is a promising approach for DR analysis. Then, predicting using a CNN completes the approach. These preprocessing filters enhance the images and prepare them for further examination. The pre-processed images are fed into a CNN model. The model extracts significant information from the images by identifying complex patterns. DR or classification may be predicted by the CNN model through training on a labeled dataset.</p><p>METHODS: The Method Preprocessing is employed for enhancing the clarity and difference of retina fundus picture by removing noise and fluctuation. The preprocessing stage is utilized for the normalization of the pictures and non-uniform brightness adjustment in addition to contrast augmentation and noise mitigation to remove noises and improve the rate of precision of the subsequent processing stages.</p><p>RESULTS: To improve image quality and reduce noise, preprocessing techniques including Sobel, Wiener, Gaussian, and non-local mean filters are frequently employed in image processing jobs. For a particular task, the non-local mean filter produces superior results; for enhanced performance, it may be advantageous to combine it with a CNN. Before supplying the processed images to the CNN for prediction, the non-local mean filter can assist reduce noise and improve image details.</p><p>CONCLUSION: A promising method for DR analysis entails the use of image preprocessing methods such as the Sobel, Wiener, Gaussian, and non-local mean filters, followed by prediction using a CNN. These preprocessing filters improve the photos and get them ready for analysis. After being pre-processed, the photos are sent into a CNN model, which uses its capacity to discover intricate patterns to draw out important elements from the images. The CNN model may predict DR or classification by training it on a labeled dataset. The development of computer-aided diagnosis systems for DR is facilitated by the integration of CNN prediction with image preprocessing filters. This strategy may increase the effectiveness of healthcare workers, boost patient outcomes, and lessen the burden of DR.</p> 2024-02-22T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 S Balaji, B Karthik, D Gokulakrishnan Analyzing Machine Learning Classifiers for the Diagnosis of Heart Disease 2024-02-29T14:19:10+00:00 Saravanan Thangavel Saravanakumar Selvaraj Ganesh Karthikeyan V K Keerthika <p>INTRODUCTION: Preventable deaths from cardiovascular diseases outnumber all others combined.

Early identification is crucial for accurate diagnosis and therapy-based interventions. In recent years, an automated monitoring system has been developed to facilitate the health assessment of infants, enabling early recognition of neurological dysfunctions in high-risk infants. However, the interpretation of these assessments lacks standardization and is subject to examiner bias.</p><p>OBJECTIVES: Many infants with CP exhibit increased tonic stretch reflexes due to Upper Motor Neuron Syndrome (UMNS), resulting from motor neuron damage that disrupts muscle signalling.</p><p>METHOD: To detect abnormal muscle reactions, our team employed an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensor, comprising three tri-axial sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer) that capture movement data continuously and unobtrusively. IMU sensors are compact, cost-effective, and have low processing requirements, requiring attachment to the infant's body to measure inter-body part angles. Our team analyzed muscle activity and posture using IMU sensors, collecting tri-axial data from 43 infants in real-time. Additional factors like age, stride length, and leg length were incorporated into the dataset.</p><p>RESULTS: Our team has applied various supervised machine learning approaches to predict CP in infants due to the limited dataset size, validating models through k-fold cross-validation. Among the models, Naive Bayes (NB) outperformed Logistic Regression (LR), Decision Tree (DT), Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA), k-Nearest Neighbors (kNN), and Support Vector Machine (SVM), achieving an accuracy of 88%.

The PPG signals acquired from the sensor measurement are severely distorted by various artifacts, which significantly impact the accuracy of disease detection and hamper the disease diagnosis process.</span></p><p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">OBJECTIVES: Removing the noises is essential before detecting CVDs from the signals and thus, developing a simple and effective noise reduction method for enhancing the PPG signal quality constitutes a challenging research problem, particularly with prominent artifacts.</span></p><p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">METHODS: This paper designs an effective pre-processing technique that improves denoising methods to enhance the PPG signal quality. The design of pre-processing technique contains two major phases: Primary denoising-based artifact removal and secondary denoising-based Premature Ventricular Contraction (PVC) detection and Power-Line Interference (PLI) noise removal. The primary denoising method involves coarse and fine-grained filtering. The coarse-grained filtering removes the major artifacts, such as Baseline Wander (BLW) and Motion Artifacts (MA), by developing the Two-Stage Adaptive Noise Canceller (TANC) method. The fine-grained filtering process utilizes a detrended filter to filter the refined signal obtained from the TANC method. For the signals filtered from the primary denoising method, the secondary denoising method targets to detect the PVC-induced PPG signals from the decomposed high-frequency signals and removes high-frequency noise, such as PLI from noisy signals, by adopting the Wavelet Transform (WT) method.</span></p><p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">RESULTS: During the signal reconstruction process in the WT method, the research work reconstructs the denoised PPG signals along with the PVC-induced PPG signals.

A retinal scan is usually used to detect it. Glaucoma poses a challenge to predict in its nascent stages because the side effects of glaucoma are not recognized until the advanced stages of the disease are reached. Therefore, regular eye examinations are important and recommended. Manual glaucoma screening methods are labour-intensive and time-consuming processes. However, deep learning-based glaucoma detection methods reduce the need for manual work and improve accuracy and speed.</p><p>OBJECTIVES: &nbsp;conduct a literature analysis of latest technical publications using various AI, Machine learning, and Deep learning methodologies for automated glaucoma detection.</p><p>&nbsp;RESULTS: There are 329 Scopus articles on glaucoma detection using retinal images. The quantitative review presented state-of-art methods from different research publications and articles and the usage of a fundus image database for qualitative and quantitative analysis. This paper presents the execution of Explainable AI for Glaucoma prediction Analysis. Explainable AI (XAI) is artificial intelligence (AI) that allows humans to understand AI decisions and predictions. This contrasts with the machine learning “black box” concept, where even the designer cannot explain why the AI made certain decisions. XAI is committed to improving user performance. To provide reliable explanations for Glaucoma forecasting from unhealthy and diseased photos, XAI primarily employs an Adaptive Neuro-fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS).</p><p>CONCLUSION: This article proposes and compares the performance metrics of ANFIS &amp; SNN fuzzy layers, VGG19, AlexNet, ResNet, and MobileNet.</p> 2024-04-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Najeeba Afreen, Rajanikanth Aluvalu 3D Convolutional Neural Networks for Predicting Protein Structure for Improved Drug Recommendation 2024-04-08T14:29:28+00:00 Pokkuluri Kiran Sree SSSN Usha Devi N <p>INTRODUCTION: Protein structure prediction is critical for recommendation personalized medicine and drug discovery.

SCD leads to damaging cycles of sickling and desickling of red blood cells due to HbS polymer formation, resulting in chronic haemolytic anaemia and tissue hypoxia. We propose using machine learning to categorize SCD patients based on haemoglobin, reticulocyte count, and LDH levels, crucial markers of hemolysis. Statistical analysis, particularly Linear Regression, demonstrates how haemoglobin depletion occurs using LDH and reticulocyte parameters.</span></p><p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">Bilirubin and haemoglobin, two integral biomarkers in clinical biochemistry and haematology, serve distinct yet interconnected roles in human physiology. Bilirubin, a product of heme degradation, is a critical indicator of liver function and various hepatic disorders, while haemoglobin, found in red blood cells, is responsible for oxygen transport throughout the body. Understanding the statistical relationship between these biomarkers has far-reaching clinical implications, enabling improved diagnosis, prognosis, and patient care. This research paper conducts a comprehensive statistical analysis of bilirubin and haemoglobin using various regression techniques to elucidate their intricate association. The primary objective of this study is to characterize the relationship between bilirubin and haemoglobin. Through meticulous data analysis, we explore whether these biomarkers exhibit positive, negative, or no correlation. Additionally, this research develops predictive models for estimating haemoglobin levels based on bilirubin data, offering valuable tools for healthcare professionals in clinical practice. </span></p> 2024-04-09T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Bhawna Dash, Soumyalatha Naveen, Ashwinkumar UM Bibliometric analysis of publications on neuroscience and noncommunicable diseases in the Scopus database 2024-04-09T13:04:34+00:00 Antony Paul Espiritu-Martinez Miriam Zulema Espinoza-Veliz Melvi Janett Espinoza-Egoavil Katerine Karen Gomez-Perez Karina Liliana Espinoza-Véliz Linda Flor Villa-Ricapa Eva Luisa Núñez-Palacios <p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">Introduction: The present study aimed to perform a bibliometric analysis of neuroscience and noncommunicable diseases in the Scopus database between 2003 and 2023.

Computer vision and motion tracking are very important for enhancing performance, reducing the risk of accidents, and training in general. Some computer vision algorithms investigate how a sportsperson moves when competing or practising. It is possible that coaches who continuously evaluate their players’ posture, muscle activation, and joint angles would have a better understanding of biomechanical efficiency. It is possible to generate performance measurements from the real-time surveillance of athletes while competing in sports. Through the use of computer vision, it is possible to identify acts that might be hazardous. Notifications are given to coaches if there is a deviation in the form of an athlete, which enables them to address the situation as soon as possible. The three variables that these sensors monitor are the direction, speed, and acceleration. Athletes can encounter realistic environments thanks to the integration of motion tracking with virtual reality. One may use the feedback loop to increase their spatial awareness and decision-making ability. Augmented reality allows for enhancing an athlete’s eyesight by providing them with real-time data while practising. Last but not least, the use of computer vision and motion tracking is bringing about a significant improvement in the sporting training process.

Extracting liver tumors in CT images is complex due to the low contrast between the malignant and healthy tissues and the hazy boundaries in CT images. Moreover, manually detecting hepatic tumors from CT images is complicated, time-consuming, and needs clinical expertise.</p><p>OBJECTIVES: An automated liver and hepatic malignancies segmentation is essential to improve surgery planning, therapy, and follow-up evaluation. Therefore, this study demonstrates the creation of an intuitive approach for segmenting tumors from the liver in CT scans.</p><p>METHODS: The proposed framework uses residual UNet (ResUNet) architecture and local region-based segmentation. The algorithm begins by segmenting the liver, followed by malignancies within the liver envelope. First, ResUNet trained on labeled CT images predicts the coarse liver pixels. Further, the region-level segmentation helps determine the tumor and improves the overall segmentation map. The model is tested on a public 3D-IRCADb dataset.</p><p>RESULTS: Two metrics, namely dice coefficient and volumetric overlap error (VOE), were used to evaluate the performance of the proposed method. ResUNet model achieved dice of 0.97 and 0.96 in segmenting liver and tumor, respectively. The value of VOE is also reduced to 1.90 and 0.615 for liver and tumor segmentation.</p><p>CONCLUSION: The proposed ResUNet model performs better than existing methods in the literature. Since the proposed model is built using U-Net, the model ensures quality and precise dimensions of the output.</p> 2024-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Khushi Gupta, Shrey Aggarwal, Avinash Jha, Aamir Habib, Jayant Jagtap, Shrikrishna Kolhar, Shruti Patil, Ketan Kotecha, Tanupriya Choudhury A Comparative Analysis using various algorithm Approaches to Enhance Heart Disease Prognosis 2024-04-02T13:37:13+00:00 Anuraag Ramineni Rishita Konda Jayashree J Deepak Sannapareddy Saketh Konduri <p class="ICST-abstracttext"><span lang="EN-GB">INTRODUCTION: Modern advancements in technology and data science have propelled the healthcare industry towards developing more accurate disease prognostic prediction models.
