Samenvatting

The objective of this study was to investigate the use of classification methods by a machine-learning approach for discriminating the uterine activity during the four phases of the menstrual cycle. Four different classifiers, including support vector machine (SVM), K-nearest neighbors (KNN), Gaussian mixture model (GMM) and naïve Bayes are here proposed. A set of amplitude- and frequency-features were extracted from signals measured by two different quantitative and noninvasive methods, such as electrohysterography and ultrasound speckle tracking. The proposed classifiers were trained using all possible feature combinations. The method was applied on a database (24 measurements) collected in different phases of the menstrual cycle, comprising uterine active and quiescent phases. The SVM classifier showed the best performance for discrimination between the different menstrual phases. The classification accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity were 90%, 79%, 93%, respectively. Similar methods can in the future contribute to the diagnosis of infertility or other common uterine diseases such as endometriosis.
