Abstract

A method for classification is introduced in this article, and it is tested on ADNI database to diagnose alzheimer’s disease (AD). It is obvious that tunning the performance of a classification to get better results is a complicated problem, and when we want model’s accuracy or other peformance measurments higher than 90%, the problem will be more complicated. In this study, we tried and succeeded to discover a method to solve this problem. The final feature set can be used clustering too, because outgrowth feature set of the proposed method is invigorated. In the recent years, a lot of activities is done to develop computer aided systems (CAD) for alzheimer’s disease diagnosis. Most of these recently developed systems concenterated on extracting and combining features from MRI, PET, CSF, and …; in this article, we made attempt to do so and utilized one more technique to increase classification performance. Finding and producing the best features to solve three binary classification problems of AD vs. Normal Control (NC), Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) vs. NC, and MCI vs. AD are the purposes of this article. Experiments indicate performance and effectiveness rates of the proposed method, which are accuracies of 98.81%, 81.61%, and 81.40% for AD vs. NC, MCI vs. NC, and AD vs. MCI classification problems, respectively. As can be seen, using this method increased the performance of the three binary problems incredibly.
