Machine-Learning Algorithm Analyzes Images to Identify Schizophrenia Patients
A team of researchers from the University of Alberta has developed a machine-learning algorithm to examine functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) images for identifying patients suffering from schizophrenia and ascertaining if they would respond to treatment. In a study, the algorithm examined MRI images of both newly diagnosed, previously untreated schizophrenia patients and healthy subjects and successfully identified patients with schizophrenia at 78% accuracy. It also predicted whether or not a patient would respond positively to a specific antipsychotic treatment named risperidone with 82% accuracy.
