Chronic disease modeling and simulation software

Jacob Barhak, Deanna J.M. Isaman, Wen Ye, Donghee Lee
2010 Journal of Biomedical Informatics  
Computers allow describing the progress of a disease using computerized models. These models allow aggregating expert and clinical information to allow researchers and decision makers to forecast disease progression. To make this forecast reliable, good models and therefore good modeling tools are required. This paper will describe a new computer tool designed for chronic disease modeling. The modeling capabilities of this tool were used to model the Michigan model for diabetes. The modeling

Efficient registration for precision inspection of free-form surfaces

Liang Zhu, Jacob Barhak, Vijay Srivatsan, Reuven Katz
2006 The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology  
Precision inspection of free-form surface is difficult with current industry practices that rely on accurate fixtures. Alternatively, the measurements can be aligned to the part model using a geometry-based registration method, such as the iterative closest point (ICP) method, to achieve a fast and automatic inspection process. This paper discusses various techniques that accelerate the registration process and improve the efficiency of the ICP method. First, the data structures of approximated

The closest point calculation is further improved with the cached facets across iteration steps. The registration efficiency can also be enhanced by incorporating signal-to-noise ratio into the transformation of correspondence sets to reduce or remove the noise of outliers. Last, an acceleration method based on linear or quadratic extrapolation is fine-tuned to provide the fast yet robust iteration process. These techniques have been implemented on a four-axis blade inspection machine where no accurate fixture is required. The tests of measurement simulations and inspection case studies indicated that the presented registration method is accurate and efficient.

Use of secondary data to estimate instantaneous model parameters of diabetic heart disease: Lemonade Method

Wen Ye, Deanna J.M. Isaman, Jacob Barhak
2012 Information Fusion  
With the increasing burden of chronic diseases on the health care system, Markov-type models are becoming popular to predict the long-term outcomes of early intervention and to guide disease management. However, statisticians have not been actively involved in the development of these models. Typically, the models are developed by using secondary data analysis to find a single "best" study to estimate each transition in the model. However, due to the nature of secondary data analysis, there

This paper illustrates a likelihood approach to correctly model the design of clinical studies under the conditions where 1) the theoretical model may include an instantaneous state of distinct interest to the researchers, and 2) the study design may be such that study data can not be used to estimate a single parameter in the theoretical model of interest. For example, a study may ignore intermediary stages of disease. Using our approach, not only can we accommodate the two conditions above, but more than one study may be used to estimate model parameters. In the spirit of "If life gives you lemon, make lemonade", we call this method "Lemonade Method". Simulation studies are carried out to evaluate the finite sample property of this method. In addition, the method is demonstrated through application to a model of heart disease in diabetes.

The Reference Model for Disease Progression

Jacob Barhak
2012 Proceedings of the 11th Python in Science Conference   unpublished
The Reference Model for disease progression is based on a modeling framework written in Python. It is a prototype that demonstrates the use of computing power to aid in chronic disease forecast. The model uses references to publicly available data as a source of information, hence the name for the model. The Reference Model also holds this name since it is designed to be used by other models as a reference. The model uses parallel processing and computing power to create a competition among
