  • Pattern and In-Hospital Mortality of Thoracoabdominal Injuries Associated
           with Motor Vehicle Accident-Related Spinal Injury: A Retrospective
           Single-Center Study

    • Abstract: Background. Motor vehicle accident (MVA) is a global health hazard that results in spinal, thoracic, and abdominal injuries. Detailed studies on the association between MVA-related traumatic spinal injury (TSI) and thoracoabdominal injuries are lacking. This study aims to elucidate the prevalence, pattern of association between these injuries, and related outcomes in terms of in-hospital mortality. Methods. This is a retrospective single-center study of MVA-related TSI with thoracoabdominal associated injuries. Descriptive analysis was performed for gender, age, spinal injury level, thoracoabdominal injury region, admission day, hospital stay duration, and discharge category. The association between TSI and thoracoabdominal injury was analyzed, and the chi-square test was used to test the significance of differences. A statistically significant difference was considered at values less than 0.05. Results. The cohort had a mean age of 33.6 ± 17.7 years with predominantly more males (85.1%). Thoracoabdominal injuries were present in 10.5% of MVA-related TSIs, and 9.2% of victims died during their hospital stay. There is a significant () association between the level of the spinal and the region of thoracoabdominal injuries. The presence of TSI-associated thoracic injury significantly () correlated with increased in-hospital mortality more than abdominal injury. Conclusion. Thoracoabdominal injuries concomitant with MVA-related TSI cause considerable mortality. A pattern of association exists between the level of spinal and region of thoracoabdominal injury. Knowledge of this pattern is helpful in the routine practice of trauma health partitioners.

  • Deep Learning Algorithms-Based CT Images in Glucocorticoid Therapy in
           Asthma Children with Small Airway Obstruction

    • Abstract: CT image information data under deep learning algorithms was adopted to evaluate small airway function and analyze the clinical efficacy of different glucocorticoid administration ways in asthmatic children with small airway obstruction. The Res-NET in the deep learning algorithm was used to perform feature extraction, summary classification, and other reconstruction of CT images. A deep learning network model Mask-R-CNN was constructed to enhance the ability of image reconstruction. A total of 118 children hospitalized with acute exacerbation of asthma in the hospital were recruited. After acute exacerbation treatment, 96 children with asthma were screened out for small airway obstruction, which were divided into glucocorticoid aerosol inhalation group (group A, 32 cases), glucocorticoid combined with bronchodilator aerosol inhalation group (group B, 32 cases), and oral hormone therapy group (group C, 32 cases). Asthmatic children with small airway obstruction were screened after acute exacerbation treatment and were rolled into glucocorticoid aerosol inhalation group (group A), glucocorticoid combined with bronchodilators aerosol inhalation group (group B), and oral hormone therapy group (group C). Lung function indicators (maximal mid-expiratory flow (MMEF75 and 25), 50% forced expiratory flow (FEF50), and 75% forced expiratory flow (FEF75)), FeNO level, and airway inflammation indicators (IL-6, IL-35, and eosinophilic (EOS)) were compared before and one month after treatment. The ratio of airway wall thickness to outer diameter (T/D) and the percentage of airway wall area to total airway area (WA%) were measured by e-Health high-resolution CT (HRCT). The constructed network model was used to measure the patient's coronary artery plaque and blood vessel volume, and the image was reconstructed on the Res-Net network. It was found that the MSE value of the Res-Net network was the lowest, and the efficiency was very high during the training process. T/D and WA (%) of asthmatic children with small airway obstruction after treatment were significantly lower than those before treatment (). After treatment, MMEF75/25 and FEF75 were significantly higher than those before treatment (). Lung function-related indicator FEF50 was significantly higher than that before treatment (). FeNO level after treatment was remarkably lower than that before treatment (). In addition, lung function-related indicators, airway inflammation indicators, and FeNO level improved the most in group C, followed by group B, and those improvements in group A were the least obvious, with great differences among groups (). In summary, the Res-Net model proposed was of certain feasibility and effectiveness for CT image segmentation and can effectively improve the clinical evaluation of patient CT image information. Glucocorticoids could improve small airway function and airway inflammation in asthmatic children with small airway obstruction, and oral corticosteroids were more effective than aerosol inhalation therapy.

  • Deep Learning-Based Computed Tomography Imaging to Diagnose the Lung
           Nodule and Treatment Effect of Radiofrequency Ablation

    • Abstract: This study aimed to detect and diagnose the lung nodules as early as possible to effectively treat them, thereby reducing the burden on the medical system and patients. A lung computed tomography (CT) image segmentation algorithm was constructed based on the deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN). The clinical data of 69 patients with lung nodules diagnosed by needle biopsy and pathological comprehensive diagnosis at hospital were collected for specific analysis. The CT image segmentation algorithm was used to distinguish the nature and volume of lung nodules and compared with other computer aided design (CAD) software (Philips ISP). 69 patients with lung nodules were treated by radiofrequency ablation (RFA). The results showed that the diagnostic sensitivity of the CT image segmentation algorithm based on the CNN was obviously higher than that of the Philips ISP for solid nodules

  • Model Construction of Using Physiological Signals to Detect Mental Health

    • Abstract: Background. Mental health is a direct indicator of human mental activity, and it also affects all aspects of the human body. It plays a very important role in monitoring human mental health. Objectives. To design a mental health state detection model based on physiological signals to detect human mental health. Methods. For the detection of mental health, the sliding window method is used to divide the physiological signal dataset and the corresponding time into several segments and then calculate the physiological signal data in the sliding window for each physiological signal to form a sequence of characteristic values; according to the heart rate variability of the physiological signal, the heart rate variability (HRV) is extracted from the interval spectrum waveform: through the discrete trend analysis in statistics, the change characteristics of the ECG signal are analyzed, and the sequence statistical indicators of the physiological signal are calculated. With the help of a support vector machine used for the significant accuracy with less computation power, the physiological signals of the mental state are classified, and the discriminant function of the mental health state signals is normalized. A mental health state detection model is constructed according to the index system, the optimal solution of the model is obtained through the optimization function, and the mental health state detection is completed. Result. The detection error of the proposed model is less which improves the detection accuracy and is less time consuming. Conclusion. The detection model using physiological signals is proposed to evaluate the mental health status. As compared to the other detection models, its detection time is short and method error is always less than 2% which shows its accuracy and effectiveness.

  • Impact of HSP90α, CEA, NSE, SCC, and CYFRA21-1 on Lung Cancer

    • Abstract: Lung cancer is a lethal disease, and early diagnosis with the aid of biomarkers such as HSP90α protein can certainly assist the doctors to start treatment of patient at the earliest and can save their lives. To analyse the diagnostic value of HSP90α expression in lung cancer patients by collecting data of patients through IoT devices to avoid delay in treatments, a study has been presented in this paper where the significance of HSP90α biomarker is highlighted in early diagnosis of patients suffering from lung cancer. The second objective of the research study is to examine the correlation between the appearance level of HSP90α biomarker and the clinicopathological features of lung cancer. It is also evaluated whether the changes in HSP90α index are indicative or noteworthy before and after surgery of lung cancer patients. An observatory study of 78 patients with lung cancer in Qinhuangdao Hospital is presented in this paper where the samples were collected from June 2018 to March 2020. Their data were collected through IoT devices used in the latest healthcare facilities of the hospital. The ELISA method was utilized to identify the level of plasma HSP90 and to analyse HSP90 levels between the lung cancer group and healthy group of people. The relationship between HSP90 and the clinical pathological features of 78 patients suffering from lung cancer was analysed. An electrochemical luminescence method was used to detect CEA, NSE, SCC, and CYFRA21-1 levels. ROC curve and box plots were used to determine the analytic value of HSP90 and other biomarkers used in lung cancer diagnosis. Forty-two patients with moderate to early stage lung cancer with surgical correction were selected, and paired sample T test was used to analyse HSP90 levels before and after surgery. The plasma HSP90 level of lung cancer patients was quite higher as compared to the group of healthy people as per the values depicted in the research study. Second, HSP90 levels are substantially higher in pathologic type, differentiation degree, stage, and the existence of the lung, liver, and bone metastases (  0.05). The ROC value for HSP90 was 0.599, while the area under the curve of HSP90 combined with other four tumour markers was 0.915 in the presented case study, indicating the presence of lung cancer. Patients with lung cancer had statistically significant differences in HSP90 expression levels before and after surgery (

  • Clinical and Imaging Study of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

    • Abstract: Morphine is tolerable after long-term use. After long-term use, it will have a great impact on the human body, and the treatment effect is not good. In recent years, the continuous development of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) treatment technology has made a treatment. Drug-resistant morphine dependence has a breakthrough. In this article, to study the effect of repeated transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of morphine dependence through mGluR5/TDP43/NR2B pathway, experiments were carried out on rats to compare the changes in the images of rats after different periods of morphine use and their effects on morphine withdrawal. During the period, the performance of rats provides a reference for repeated transcranial stimulation to treat morphine dependence. According to the experimental results, after stopping morphine, withdrawal from the rats, irritable acts, and patience diminished. This is a decrease of more than 50% in comparison with the one of the normal group. There was a different degree of variability in the treatment images of mGluR5/TDP43 and so on after rTMS treatment, and the changes were large. These reductions in detoxification responses in rodents suggest that rTMS serves an instrumental role in the prevention and treatment of phosphorylation related to morphine dependence.

  • Tumor Region Location and Classification Based on Fuzzy Logic and Region
           Merging Image Segmentation Algorithm

    • Abstract: Early diagnosis of tumor plays an important role in the improvement of treatment and survival rate of patients. However, breast tumors are difficult to be diagnosed by invasive examination, so medical imaging has become the most intuitive auxiliary method for breast tumor diagnosis. Although there is no universal perfect method for image segmentation so far, the consensus on the general law of image segmentation has produced considerable research results and methods. In this context, this paper focuses on the breast tumor image segmentation method based on CNN and proposes an improved DCNN method combined with CRF. This method can obtain the information of multiscale and pixels better. The experimental results show that, compared with DCNN without these methods, the segmentation accuracy is significantly improved.

  • Impact of Factors of Online Deceptive Reviews on Customer Purchase
           Decision Based on Machine Learning

    • Abstract: Online deceptive reviews widely exist in the online shopping environment. Numerous studies have investigated the impact of online product reviews on customer behaviour and sales. However, the existing literature is mainly based on real product reviews; only a few studies have investigated deceptive reviews. Based on the results of deceptive reviews, this article explores the factors that affect customer purchase decision in online review systems, which is flooded by deceptive reviews. Therefore, a deceptive review influence model is proposed based on three influential factors of online review system, sentiment characteristics, review length, and online seller characteristics. Based on them, text mining is used to quantify the indicators of the three influential factors. Through principal component analysis and linear regression, the experimental results of electronic appliances on Tmall show that the three influential factors are positively related to customers' purchase intention and decision making.

  • Modified Look-Locker Inverse-Recovery (MOLLI) Sequence of Quantitative
           Imaging in Dirty Magnetic Resonance Longitudinal Relaxation Time
           Diagnostic Value of GE Combined with Longitudinal Relaxation Time
           Quantitative Imaging for Myocardial Amyloidosis

    • Abstract: The pathological changes of myocarditis include degeneration and necrosis of myocardial cells and infiltration of inflammatory cells in the myocardial interstitium, accompanied by obvious myocardial fibrosis. Myocardial fibrosis is a determinant of ventricular remodeling and an important indicator of the classification of clinical risk factors and has an important value in evaluating the prognosis of heart disease. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is the “gold standard” for evaluating the shape and function of the heart, and it can show the characteristic pathological changes of myocardial tissue. The traditional gadolinium imaging agent delays the enhanced sequence images to visually show the extent of the affected myocardial fibrosis, but it cannot effectively identify small focal fibrosis or widespread diffuse fibrosis. The CMR longitudinal relaxation time quantitative technique can directly measure the relaxation time (T1) determined by the myocardial tissue and does not depend on the signal strength of the reference tissue and can quantitatively analyze the affected myocardium. In this study, the initial and enhanced quantitative imaging techniques of CMR were used to measure the magnetic value of the myocardium in patients with myocarditis, to explore the diagnostic value of myocardial fibrosis, and to analyze the correlation between cardiac fibrosis and cardiac function.

  • The Awareness of the Human Papillomavirus Infection and Oropharyngeal
           Cancer in People to Improve the Health Care System at Al Qunfudhah Region,
           Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    • Abstract: With 14 million new infections each year, the human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) among both men and women in the United States (US). Infections with the human papillomavirus (HPV) are responsible for a considerable portion of the global cancer burden. HPV-related oral malignancies are on the rise around the world, according to epidemiological studies. To provide accurate advice to their patients, dental practitioners require thorough, up-to-date HPV-related knowledge. Methods. In this cross-sectional study, data were collected by the purposely constructed questionnaire. A questionnaire composed of the demographic items and items related to the awareness and knowledge about Human papillomavirus. The questionnaire was constructed after a series of discussions between the panel of experts. This panel was composed of a subject specialist, researcher, and language expert. The Cronbach alpha of the questionnaire was calculated. The study will be conducted in the Al Qunfudhah. Results. The Cronbach alpha of the questionnaire was 0.72. Out of a total of 550 respondents, with a mean (SD) age of 47.5 (11.5), the female respondents were 167 (30.4%) while male were 383 (69.6%). 20.5% of the respondents (out of 550) were having awareness of HPV. Implications. Knowledge of HPV-related oral cancer is critical, and it is advised to be taught as part of dental students’ basic curriculum and clinical training. This problem can be solved by better educational training programs. Knowledge of HPV-related oral cancer is critical, and it is advised to be taught as part of dental students’ basic curriculum and clinical training.

    • Abstract: The study aimed to explore the accuracy and stability of Deep metric learning (DML) algorithm in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) examination of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) patients. In this study, MRI data of patients obtained were from Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) database (A total of 180 AD cases, 88 women, 92 men; 188 samples in healthy conditions (HC), including 90 females and 98 males. 210 samples of mild cognitive impairment (MCI), 104 females and 106 males). On the basis of deep learning, an early AD diagnosis system was constructed using CNN (Convolutional Neural Network) and DML algorithms. Then, the system was used to classify AD, HC, and MCI, and the two algorithms were compared for the accuracy and stability of in classification of MRI images. It was found that in the classification of AD and HC, the classification accuracy and sensitivity of the deep measurement learning model are both 0.83, superior to the CNN model; in terms of specificity, the classification specificity of the DML model was 0.82, slightly lower than that of the CNN model; and that in the classification of MCI and HC, the classification accuracy and sensitivity of the DML model was 0.65, superior to the CNN model; and in terms of specificity, the classification specificity of the DML model was 0.66, slightly lower than that of the CNN model. It suggested that the DML model demonstrated better classification effects on early AD patients. The loss curve analysis results showed that, for classification of AD and HC or MCI and HC, the DML algorithm can improve the convergence speed of the AD early prediction model. Therefore, the DML algorithm can significantly improve the clarity and quality of MRI images, elevate the classification accuracy and stability of early AD patients, and accelerate the convergence of the model, providing a new way for early prediction of AD.

  • Analysing a Novel RNA-Binding-Protein-Related Prognostic Signature Highly
           Expressed in Breast Cancer

    • Abstract: Background. Breast cancer (BRCA) is one of the most common cancers and the leading cause of cancer-related death in women. RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) play an important role in the emergence and pathogenesis of tumors. The target RNAs of RBPs are very diverse; in addition to binding to mRNA, RBPs also bind to noncoding RNA. Noncoding RNA can cause secondary structures that can bind to RBPs and regulate multiple processes such as splicing, RNA modification, protein localization, and chromosomes remodeling, which can lead to tumor initiation, progression, and invasion. Methods. (1) BRCA data were downloaded from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) databases and were used as training and testing datasets, respectively. (2) The prognostic RBPs-related genes were screened according to the overlapping differentially expressed genes (DEGs) from the TCGA database. (3) Univariate Cox proportional hazard regression was performed to identify the genes with significant prognostic value. (4) Further, we used the LASSO regression to construct a prognostic signature and validated the signature in the TCGA and ICGC cohort. (5) Besides, we also performed prognostic analysis, expression level verification, immune cell correlation analysis, and drug correlation analysis of the genes in the model. Results. Four genes (MRPL13, IGF2BP1, BRCA1, and MAEL) were identified as prognostic gene signatures. The prognostic model has been validated in the TCGA and ICGC cohorts. The risk score calculated with four genes signatures could largely predict overall survival for 1, 3, and 5 years in patients with BRCA. The calibration plot demonstrated outstanding consistency between the prediction and actual observation. The findings of online database verification revealed that these four genes were significantly highly expressed in tumors. Also, we observed their significant correlations with some immune cells and also potential correlations with some drugs. Conclusion. We constructed a 4-RBPs-based prognostic signature to predict the prognosis of BRCA patients, and it has the potential for treating and diagnosing BRCA.

  • A Computer-Aided Method for Digestive System Abnormality Detection in WCE

    • Abstract: Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) is a powerful tool for the diagnosis of gastrointestinal diseases. The output of this tool is in video with a length of about eight hours, containing about 8000 frames. It is a difficult task for a physician to review all of the video frames. In this paper, a new abnormality detection system for WCE images is proposed. The proposed system has four main steps: (1) preprocessing, (2) region of interest (ROI) extraction, (3) feature extraction, and (4) classification. In ROI extraction, at first, distinct areas are highlighted and nondistinct areas are faded by using the joint normal distribution; then, distinct areas are extracted as an ROI segment by considering a threshold. The main idea is to extract abnormal areas in each frame. Therefore, it can be used to extract various lesions in WCE images. In the feature extraction step, three different types of features (color, texture, and shape) are employed. Finally, the features are classified using the support vector machine. The proposed system was tested on the Kvasir-Capsule dataset. The proposed system can detect multiple lesions from WCE frames with high accuracy.

  • Dynamic Electrocardiogram under P Wave Detection Algorithm Combined with
           Low-Dose Betaloc in Diagnosis and Treatment of Patients with Arrhythmia
           after Hepatocarcinoma Resection

    • Abstract: This work aimed to study the diagnostic value of dynamic electrocardiogram (ECG) based on P wave detection algorithm for arrhythmia after hepatectomy in patients with primary liver cancer, and to compare the therapeutic effect of different doses of Betaloc. P wave detection algorithm was introduced for ECG automatic detection and analysis, which can be used for early diagnosis of arrhythmia. Sixty patients with arrhythmia after hepatectomy for primary liver cancer were selected as the research objects. They were randomly divided into control group, SD group, MD group, and HD group, with 15 cases in each group. No Betaloc, low-dose (≤47.5 mg), medium-dose (47.5–95 mg), and high-dose (142.5–190 mg) Betaloc were used for treatment. As a result, P wave detection algorithms can mark P waves that may be submerged in strong interference. P waves from arrhythmia database were used to verify the performance of the proposed algorithm. The prediction precision (Pp) of ventricular arrhythmia and atrial arrhythmia was 98.53% and 98.76%, respectively. Systolic blood pressure (117.35 ± 7.33, 126.44 ± 9.38, and 116.02 ± 8.2) mmHg in SD group, MD group, and HD group was significantly lower than that in control group (140.3 ± 7.21) mmHg after two weeks of treatment. Moreover, those of SD group and HD group were significantly lower than MD group (). The effective rate of cardiac function improvement in SD group (72.35 ± 1.21%) was significantly higher than that in control group, MD group, and HD group (38.2 ± 0.98%, 65.12 ± 1.33%, and 60.43 ± 1.25%; ). In short, dynamic ECG based on P wave detection algorithm had high diagnostic value for arrhythmia after hepatectomy in patients with primary liver cancer. It was safe and effective for patients to choose small dose of Betaloc.

           Pneumonia in Children

    • Abstract: To evaluate the effect of specific nursing intervention in children with mycoplasma pneumonia (MP), a feature extraction algorithm based on gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) was proposed and combined with computed tomography (CT) image texture features. Then, 98 children with MP were rolled into the observation group with 49 cases (specific nursing) and the control group with 49 cases (routine nursing). CT images based on feature extraction algorithm of optimized GLCM were used to examine the children before and after nursing intervention, and the recovery of the two groups of children was discussed. The results showed that the proportion of lung texture increase, rope shadow, ground glass shadow, atelectasis, and pleural effusion in the observation group (24.11%, 3.86%, 8.53%, 15.03%, and 3.74%) was significantly lower than that in the control group (28.53%, 10.23%, 13.34%, 21.15%, and 8.13%) after nursing (). There were no significant differences in the proportion of small patchy shadows, large patchy consolidation shadows, and bronchiectasis between the observation group and the control group (). In the course of nursing intervention, in the observation group, the disappearance time of cough, normal temperature, disappearance time of lung rales, and absorption time of lung shadow (2.15 ± 0.86 days, 4.81 ± 1.14 days, 3.64 ± 0.55 days, and 5.96 ± 0.62 days) were significantly shorter than those in the control group (2.87 ± 0.95 days, 3.95 ± 1.06 days, 4.51 ± 1.02 days, and 8.14 ± 1.35 days) (). After nursing intervention, the proportion of satisfaction and total satisfaction in the experimental group (67.08% and 28.66%) was significantly higher than that in the control group (40.21% and 47.39%), while the proportion of dissatisfaction (4.26%) was significantly lower than that in the control group (12.4%) (). To sum up, specific nursing intervention was more beneficial to improve the progress of characterization recovery and the overall recovery effect of children with MP relative to conventional nursing. CT image based on feature extraction algorithm of optimized GLCM was of good adoption value in the diagnosis and treatment of MP in children.

  • An Image Recognition Framework for Oral Cancer Cells

    • Abstract: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a common type of cancer of the oral cavity. Despite their great impact on mortality, sufficient screening techniques for early diagnosis of OSCC often lack accuracy and thus OSCCs are mostly diagnosed at a late stage. Early detection and accurate recognition of OSCCs would lead to an improved curative result and a reduction in recurrence rates after surgical treatment. The introduction of image recognition technology into the doctor’s diagnosis process can significantly improve cancer diagnosis, reduce individual differences, and effectively assist doctors in making the correct diagnosis of the disease. The objective of this study was to assess the precision and robustness of a deep learning-based method to automatically identify the extent of cancer on digitized oral images. We present a new method that employs different variants of convolutional neural network (CNN) for detecting cancer in oral cells. Our approach involves training the classifier on different images from the imageNet dataset and then independently validating on different cancer cells. The image is segmented using multiscale morphology methods to prepare for cell feature analysis and extraction. The method of morphological edge detection is used to more accurately extract the target, cell area, perimeter, and other multidimensional features followed by classification through CNN. For all five variants of CNN, namely, VGG16, VGG19, InceptionV3, InceptionResNetV2, and Xception, the train and value losses are less than 6%. Experimental results show that the method can be an effective tool for OSCC diagnosis.

  • Intelligent Solutions in Chest Abnormality Detection Based on YOLOv5 and

    • Abstract: Computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) has nearly fifty years of history and has assisted many clinicians in the diagnosis. With the development of technology, recently, researches use the deep learning method to get high accuracy results in the CAD system. With CAD, the computer output can be used as a second choice for radiologists and contribute to doctors doing the final right decisions. Chest abnormality detection is a classic detection and classification problem; researchers need to classify common thoracic lung diseases and localize critical findings. For the detection problem, there are two deep learning methods: one-stage method and two-stage method. In our paper, we introduce and analyze some representative model, such as RCNN, SSD, and YOLO series. In order to better solve the problem of chest abnormality detection, we proposed a new model based on YOLOv5 and ResNet50. YOLOv5 is the latest YOLO series, which is more flexible than the one-stage detection algorithms before. The function of YOLOv5 in our paper is to localize the abnormality region. On the other hand, we use ResNet, avoiding gradient explosion problems in deep learning for classification. And we filter the result we got from YOLOv5 and ResNet. If ResNet recognizes that the image is not abnormal, the YOLOv5 detection result is discarded. The dataset is collected via VinBigData’s web-based platform, VinLab. We train our model on the dataset using Pytorch frame and use the mAP, precision, and F1-score as the metrics to evaluate our model’s performance. In the progress of experiments, our method achieves superior performance over the other classical approaches on the same dataset. The experiments show that YOLOv5’s mAP is 0.010, 0.020, 0.023 higher than those of YOLOv5, Fast RCNN, and EfficientDet. In addition, in the dimension of precision, our model also performs better than other models. The precision of our model is 0.512, which is 0.018, 0.027, 0.033 higher than YOLOv5, Fast RCNN, and EfficientDet.

  • Adaptive Diagnosis of Lung Cancer by Deep Learning Classification Using
           Wilcoxon Gain and Generator

    • Abstract: Cancer is a complicated worldwide health issue with an increasing death rate in recent years. With the swift blooming of the high throughput technology and several machine learning methods that have unfolded in recent years, progress in cancer disease diagnosis has been made based on subset features, providing awareness of the efficient and precise disease diagnosis. Hence, progressive machine learning techniques that can, fortunately, differentiate lung cancer patients from healthy persons are of great concern. This paper proposes a novel Wilcoxon Signed-Rank Gain Preprocessing combined with Generative Deep Learning called Wilcoxon Signed Generative Deep Learning (WS-GDL) method for lung cancer disease diagnosis. Firstly, test significance analysis and information gain eliminate redundant and irrelevant attributes and extract many informative and significant attributes. Then, using a generator function, the Generative Deep Learning method is used to learn the deep features. Finally, a minimax game (i.e., minimizing error with maximum accuracy) is proposed to diagnose the disease. Numerical experiments on the Thoracic Surgery Data Set are used to test the WS-GDL method's disease diagnosis performance. The WS-GDL approach may create relevant and significant attributes and adaptively diagnose the disease by selecting optimal learning model parameters. Quantitative experimental results show that the WS-GDL method achieves better diagnosis performance and higher computing efficiency in computational time, computational complexity, and false-positive rate compared to state-of-the-art approaches.
