Automated machine vision enabled detection of movement disorders from hand drawn spirals

A widely used test for the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease (PD) and Essential tremor (ET) is hand-drawn shapes,where the analysis is observationally performed by the examining neurologist. This method is subjective and is prone to bias amongst different physicians. Due to the similarities in the symptoms of the two diseases, they are often misdiagnosed.Studies which attempt to automate the process typically use digitized input, where the tablet or specialized equipment are not affordable in many clinical settings. This study uses a dataset of scanned pen and paper drawings and a convolutional neural network (CNN) to perform classification between PD, ET and control subjects. The discrimination accuracy of PD from controls was 98.2 was 92 parameter optimization can increases the accuracy up to 4.33 study indicates the viability of using a CNN-enabled machine vision system to provide robust and accurate detection of movement disorders from hand drawn spirals.
