Diagnostic heterogeneity in psychiatry: towards an

Sep 12 2013The launch of the 5th version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) has sparked a debate about the current approach to psychiatric classification The most basic and enduring problem of the DSM is that its classifications are heterogeneous clinical descriptions rather than valid diagnoses which hampers scientific progress Therefore more

Validity and Reliability of Clinical Signs in the

Objective To determine the validity and reliability of various clinical findings in the diagnosis of dehydration in children Design Prospective cohort study Setting An urban pediatric hospital emergency department Participants One hundred eighty-six children ranging in age from 1 month to 5 years old with diarrhea vomiting or poor oral fluid inTongWei either admitted or followed as

Typologies of drug dependence: comparative validity of a

Mar 08 2004The multivariate typology also fared better than the univariate ones in all three domains on which predictive validity was evaluated: substance use psychopathology and overall functioning as well as the degree of change in several composite scores (drug medical legal and psychiatric) and the global psychiatric symptom index

Multivariate Normal Distribution

A multivariate normal distribution is a vector in multiple normally distributed variables such that any linear combination of the variables is also normally distributed It is mostly useful in extending the central limit theorem to multiple variables but also has applications to bayesian inference and thus machine learning where the multivariate normal distribution is used to approximate

Joint modeling of multivariate longitudinal data and

Nov 16 2018The goal of this study was to estimate a multivariate joint model on several longitudinal observational studies of Huntington's disease examine external validity performance and compute individual-specific predictions for characterizing disease progression Emphasis was on the survival submodel for predicting the hazard of motor diagnosis

Multivariate statistics

Multivariate statistics is a subdivision of statistics encompassing the simultaneous observation and analysis of more than one outcome variable The application of multivariate statistics is multivariate analysis Multivariate statistics concerns understanding the different aims and background of each of the different forms of multivariate analysis and how they relate to each other

Evaluating the validity of dengue clinical

An accurate and early diagnosis of dengue is essential to provide adequate treatment and may be life-saving 10 Little is known about the accuracy of clinical diagnosis compared with laboratory diagnosis of dengue and most previous studies have used limited sample populations 27-29 Our results suggest that the sensitivity and specificity of

Multivariate meta

The diagnosis of bipolar disorder in children and adolescents has been one of the most contentious issues in child mental health over the past two decades (Carlson Klein 2014 Biederman Klein Pine Klein 1998) The questions of whether bipolar disorder could manifest before puberty whether the same criteria should be used for children as for adults and the validity and importance of

Development and validation of a multivariate predictive

Sep 12 2019The objectives of this study were (a) to employ the same statistical technique as in dogs to create a multivariate predictive model of ionized calcium concentration in cats using only readily available data such as signalment routine biochemistry measurements and T4 values and (b) to evaluate the diagnostic performances of predicted ionized

The diagnostic validity of clinical airway assessments for

The diagnostic validity profiles from the significantly predictive airway assessments are shown in Table 3 Low positive predictive values were observed for all airway tests The ratio of HT/TMD showed the highest sensitivity (80 0%) and ULBT had the highest specificity (95 2%)

Reliability and Diagnostic Accuracy of 5 Physical

Based on reliability and diagnostic accuracy the single tests of the painful arc external rotation resistance and empty can have the best overall clinical utility The cut point of 3 or more positive of 5 tests can confirm the diagnosis of SAIS while less than 3 positive of 5 rules out SAIS

Frontiers

Nov 25 2019Introduction: There exists over the past decades a constant debate driven by controversies in the validity of psychiatric diagnosis This debate is grounded in queries about both the validity and evidence strength of clinical measures Materials and Methods: The objective of the study is to construct a bottom-up unsupervised machine learning approach where the brain signatures
