1. Penell, Johanna. Secondary databases in equine research.

Degree: 2009, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Knowledge on disease occurrence in the Swedish equine population is lacking. Secondary data (data not produced primarily for research) including medical information offer potential to investigate disease occurrence in populations without primary data collection. This thesis explored the potential use of two nation-wide secondary equine databases for research on diseases in the Swedish horse population. The data quality in one insurance database and one database from a national equine clinic network was evaluated. For diagnostic information, the agreement in insurance data was 84% whereas the completeness (proportion of problems in the clinical records recorded in the database) and correctness (proportion of recorded disease events in the database truly occurring) of clinic data was 91% and 92%, respectively. Logistic regression showed that agreement/correctness was significantly associated with type of visit (clinic data and veterinary care claims in insurance data), whether diagnostic codes were present in the clinical record and affected system (clinic data). To present disease occurrence in the respective study populations, disease was presented as incidence rates (insurance data) and proportional morbidities (both databases). For insurance data, the most commonly affected system was joints, followed by whole body, skin and digestive system. The most common specific diagnosis was fetlock inflammation. For clinic data 22% of all visits were health visits, and for problems visits, the most commonly affected body system was joints, followed by whole body, respiratory and skeleton system. For both databases, disease occurrence was highly related to demographic factors in the horse population. The data quality in both databases was found adequate for research purposes, with due consideration of variation in data quality among disease problems. Presentation of disease indices from the two databases provided useful information on disease occurrence in horses throughout Sweden. Importantly however, as many factors affect disease, results from other studies are not directly applicable to Sweden. Thus disease statistics need be obtained from the specific population of interest.

2. Cruz, Elisete Maria Silva Dias Alves da. Diagnóstico cardíaco a partir de dados acústicos e clínicos.

Degree: 2015, Instituto Politécnico do Porto

Este documento foi redigido no âmbito da dissertação do Mestrado em Engenharia Informática na área de Arquiteturas, Sistemas e Redes, do Departamento de Engenharia Informática, do ISEP, cujo tema é diagnóstico cardíaco a partir de dados acústicos e clínicos. O objetivo deste trabalho é produzir um método que permita diagnosticar automaticamente patologias cardíacas utilizando técnicas de classificação de data mining. Foram utilizados dois tipos de dados: sons cardíacos gravados em ambiente hospitalar e dados clínicos. Numa primeira fase, exploraram-se os sons cardíacos usando uma abordagem baseada em motifs. Numa segunda fase, utilizamos os dados clínicos anotados dos pacientes. Numa terceira fase, avaliamos a combinação das duas abordagens. Na avaliação experimental os modelos baseados em motifs obtiveram melhores resultados do que os construídos a partir dos dados clínicos. A combinação das abordagens mostrou poder ser vantajosa em situações pontuais.

This document was written as part of the Thesis of the MSc in computer science in the area of Architecture, System and Network, Department of Computer Engineering in ISEP. The main theme of this Thesis is to diagnose cardiac diseases, through acoustic and clinical data. The goal of this work is to produce a process for automatically diagnosing heart problems using data mining classification techniques. Two types of data were used: heart sounds recorded in hospitals and clinical data. Initially, we explored the heart sounds using an approach based on motifs. In a second stage, we used the clinical data of the patients. In a third phase, we evaluated the combination of both approaches. Experimental evaluation showed that models based on motifs performed better than those built from clinical data. The combination of approaches has shown to be advantageous in specific situations.

3. Whistler, James W. ANALYSIS OF EMBRYO SCORING AND COMPARISON OF CLINIC PERFORMANCE IN IN-VITRO FERTILIZATION.

Degree: MS, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, 2015, Cal Poly

Clinical Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) practices seek to make improvements in embryo quality and resultant procedural success rates. There is a significant variance in live birth rates among clinics nationwide. The goal of this thesis is make comparisons of embryo quality among clinics and understand these differences. This analysis focuses on the stage between egg retrieval and embryo transfer. Because the currently accepted embryo scoring methods are not directly proportional to performance, a new scoring methodology is proposed and applied. Data provided by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) consisting of 36,836 patient cycles from 40 anonymous clinics nationwide is considered. After necessary reductions are made, the data is anatomized to link each embryo transferred to an implantation probability. A score is generated for each morphology grouping based on the average implantation rate of that group. This score is used as the basis for clinic comparisons. Top-performing clinics (in terms of live birth rates in patients agedold) are then shown to both produce embryos of higher score and achieve better results from embryos of identical morphology.
