Federica Granese, Marco Romanelli, Daniele Gorla, Catuscia Palamidessi, Pablo Piantanida
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we propose DOCTOR, a simple method that aims to identify whether the prediction of a DNN classifier should (or should not) be trusted so that, consequently, it would be possible to accept  ...  DOCTOR can be applied to any pre-trained model, it does not require prior information about the underlying dataset and is as simple as the simplest available methods in the literature.  ...  Summary and Concluding Remarks We introduced a simple and effective method to detect misclassification errors, i.e., whether a prediction of a classifier should or should not be trusted.  ...

How Many Patients? How Many Doctors?

J. I. E. Hoffman
2010 Circulation  
They collected information about survivors and nonsurvivors, and given the expertise of the involved cardiologists, few errors of misclassification can be expected.  ...  Because the incidence of specific types of CHD is less important for medical planning, they classified ACHD into three groups by severity 2,3 : Simple, which can be cared for by a well trained physician  ...

Patient passports would alert doctors to previous bone marrow transplantation

A. Smith, H. Somerville
2001 BMJ (Clinical Research Edition)  
In addition, a parallel quota of socioeconomic status was imposed. A standardised schedule was used when respondents were interviewed.  ...  In contrast, by far the highest proportion of women who were high risk drinkers (consuming >35 units a week) was among those aged only 18-24. (A unit is defined as 1 cl, or 7.9 g absolute alcohol.)  ...  when our goal was to provide a simple, easily usable tool.  ...

Estimating the Prevalence of Opioid Diversion by "Doctor Shoppers" in the United States

Douglas C. McDonald, Kenneth E. Carlson, Laxmaiah Manchikanti
2013 PLoS ONE  
Methods and Findings: The sample included records for 146.1 million opioid prescriptions dispensed during 2008 by 76% of US retail pharmacies.  ...  Conclusions: Our data did not provide information to make a clinical diagnosis of individuals. Very few of these patients can be classified with certainty as diverting drugs for nonmedical purposes.  ...  Disclaimer: Authors had full access to all of the data in the study and are responsible for the integrity of the data and the accuracy of the analyses.  ...

Exploring Geographic Variation of Mental Health Risk and Service Utilization of Doctors and Hospitals in Toronto: A Shared Component Spatial Modeling Approach

Jane Law, Christopher Perlman
2018 International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health  
We adopted a shared component spatial modeling approach that allows simultaneous analysis of two main health service utilizations: doctor visits and hospitalizations related to mental health conditions  ...  Based on the evidence found, we discuss intervention strategies, focusing on the hotspots and provision of health services about doctors and hospitals, to improve mental health for the neighbourhoods.  ...  Data of MH risk in each neighbourhood from either source may involve issues of underreporting caused by detection bias and neighbourhood misclassification caused by geocoding errors, for instance.  ...

2012 Epidemiology  
Our method avoids bias in effect estimates at low cost in variance, thus offering a perspective for better-informed decision making.  ...  The ratio of different cause-specific hazards can be estimated flexibly for this purpose. It thus complements an all-cause analysis.  ...  The study was sized to yield a power of 80% for detecting this effect on the cause-1-specific hazard at the 5% significance level (a sample size calculation is provided in eAppendix).  ...

Cognitive Radios: Discriminant Analysis for Automatic Signal Detection in Measured Power Spectra

Lee Gonzales-Fuentes, Kurt Barbe, Wendy Van Moer, Niclas Bjorsell
2013 IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement  
In this paper, we optimize the methodology for signal detection for cognitive radios such that the probability that a spectral component was incorrectly classified is minimized.  ...  A novel method proposed the segmentation of the measured spectra into regions where the flatness condition is approximately valid.  ...  Initial detection method for signal and noise components By a simple visual inspection, one can already have a rough idea of which parts of the spectrum contain signal, and which contain noise.  ...
