Applications of Logistic Regression and Artificial Neural Network for ICSI Prediction

The third most serious disease estimated by Word Wide Organization after cancer and cardiovascular disease is the infertility. The advanced treatment techniques is the Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) procedure, it represents the best chance to have a baby for couples having an infertility problem. ICSI treatment is expensive, and there are many factors affecting the success of the treatment, including male and female factors. The paper aims to classify and predict the ICSI treatment results using logistic regression and artificial neural network. For this purpose, data are extracted from real patients and contain parameters such as age, endometrial receptivity, endometrial and myometrial vascularity index, number of embryo transfer, day of transfer, and quality of embryo transferred. Overall, the logistic regression predicts the output of the ICSI outcome with an accuracy of 75%. In other parts, the neural network managed to achieve an accuracy of 79.5% with all parameters and 75% with only the significant parameters.

He received his Ph.D. in Automatic control, signal processing, production systems and robotics from the University of Le Havre in France as part of the research group (GREAH) “Groupe de Recherche en Electrotechnique et Automatique du Havre” in 2016. His research and teaching career began in September 2012; over the course of four years, he worked on developing a methodology for detecting one of the most disabling symptoms in Parkinson’s disease which is called “Freezing of Gait” (FoG). As a result of his research, he proposed a new classification algorithm based on new effective sensors for the detection/diagnosis of FoG. His research interests focus on signal and image processing, as well as computer engineering. In particular, the desire to investigate biomedical signals and images, implementing machine learning algorithms for pattern recognition purposes, and studying data dimensionality reduction techniques.
