the proposed machine learning scheme using bayesian approach achieved 84% screening accuracy 98.10% sensitivity and 68.91% specificity for both p. falciparum and p. vivax parasite recognition. on the other side the developed approach using svm leads to 83.5% screening accuracy 96.62% sensitivity and 88.51% specificity for both the parasites recognition.
in view of this our study focuses on development of machine learning approach for discriminating five three p. vivax and two p. falciparum different stages of infected erythrocyte due to malaria infection and noninfected erythrocytes using color textural and morphological information.fig. 1 depicts systematic approach for executing the screening tool development methodology for malaria
malaria rapid diagnostic tests rdts assist in the diagnosis of malaria by detecting evidence of malaria parasites antigens in human blood. rdts permit a reliable detection of malaria infections particularly in remote areas with limited access to good quality microscopy services.
malaria presents a diagnostic challenge to laboratories in most countries. endemic malaria population movements and travelers all contribute to presenting the laboratory with diagnostic problems for which it may have little expertise available. drug resistance and genetic variation has altered many accepted morphological appearances of malaria species and new technology has given an
