Symptoms based endometriosis prediction using machine learning

Visalaxi Sankaravadivel, Sudalaimuthu Thalavaipillai


Endometriosis a painful disorder that stripes the uterus both inside and outside. Endometriosis can be diagnosed by the medical practitioners with the help of traditional scanning procedures. Laparoscopic surgery is the authentic method for identifying the advanced stages of endometriosis. The statistical approach is a state-of-art method for identifying the various stages of endometriosis using laparoscopic images. The paper focuses on a well-known statistical method known as chi-square and correlation coefficients are implemented for identifying the symptoms that are correlated with various stages of endometriosis. Chi-square analysis performs the association between symptoms and stages of endometriosis. With these analysis, an algorithm was proposed known as endometriosis prediction factor algorithm (EPF). The EPF algorithm predicts the presence of endometriosis if the derived value is greater than 1. From the chi-square analysis, it is identified that mild endometriosis is influenced 34% by menstrual flow, minimal endometriosis is influenced 40% by dysmenorrhea, where moderate endometriosis is influenced 31% by tenderness and deep infiltrating endometriosis is influenced 22% by adnexal mass.
