AN ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK DESIGN FOR DETERMINATION OF HASHIMOTO’S THYROIDITIS SUB-GROUPS
AbstractIn this study, an artificial neural network was developed for estimating Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis sub-groups. Medical analysis and measurements from 75 patients were used to determine the parameters most effective on disease sub-groups. The study used statistical analyses and an artificial neural network that was trained by the determined parameters. The neural network had four inputs: thyroid stimulating hormone, free thyroxine (fT4), right lobe size (RLS), and RLS2 – fT44, and two outputs for three groups: euthyroid, subclinical, and clinical. After training, the network was tested with data collected from 30 patients. Results show that, overall, the neural network estimated the sub-groups with 90% accuracy. Hence, the study showed that determination of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis sub-groups can be made via designed artificial neural network.
