Breast cancer is one of the main causes of mortality for women around the world. Such mortality rate could be reduced if it is possible to diagnose breast cancer at the primary stage. It is hard to determine the causes of this disease that may lead to the development of breast cancer. But it is still important in predicting the probability of cancer. We can assess the likelihood of occurrence of breast cancer using machine learning algorithms and routine diagnosis data. Although a variety of patient information attributes are stored in cancer datasets not all of the attributes are important in predicting cancer. In such situations, feature selection approaches can be applied to keep the pertinent feature set. In this research, a comprehensive analysis of Machine Learning (ML) classification algorithms with and without feature selection on Wisconsin Breast Cancer Original (WBCO), Wisconsin Diagnosis Breast Cancer (WDBC), and Wisconsin Prognosis Breast Cancer (WPBC) datasets is performed for breast cancer prediction. We employed wrapper-based feature selection and three different classifiers Logistic Regression (LR), Linear Support Vector Machine (LSVM), and Quadratic Support Vector Machine (QSVM) for breast cancer prediction. Based on experimental results, it is shown that the LR classifier with feature selection performs significantly better with an accuracy of 97.1% and 83.5% on WBCO and WPBC datasets respectively. On WDBC datasets, the result reveals that the QSVM classifier without feature selection achieved an accuracy of 97.9% and these results outperform the existing methods.

Statistical Texture Features Based Automatic Detection and Classification of Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes is a globally prevalent disease that can cause microvascular compilation such as Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) in the human eye organs and it might prompt a significant reason for visual deficiency. The present study aimed to develop an automatic detection and classification system to diagnosing diabetic retinopathy from digital fundus images. An automated diabetic retinopathy detection and classification system from retinal images is proposed in our work to reduce the workload of ophthalmologists. This work comprises three main stages. Our proposed method first extracts the blood vessels from color fundus image. Secondly, the method detects whatever the input image as normal or diabetic retinopathy and then illustrates an automatic diabetic retinopathy classification technique through statistical texture features. It embeds Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) and Gray Level Run Length Matrix (GLRLM) for second-order and higher-order statistical texture feature as a feature extraction technique into three renowned classifiers namely K-Nearest Neighbor (KNN), Random Forest (RF) and Support Vector Machine (SVM). The evaluation results containing a dataset of 644 retinal images indicate that the proposed method based on random forest classifier is found to be effective with a weighted sensitivity, precision, F1-score and accuracy of 95.53% 96.45%, 95.38% and 95.19% respectively for the detection and classification of diabetic retinopathy. These outcomes propose, that the method could decrease the cost of screening and diagnosis while achieving higher than suggested performance and that the system could be implemented in clinical assessments requiring better evaluating.
