Movement Disorder Studies

Distinguishing between movement disorders and determining tremor severity from scanned hand drawn spirals using Artificial Intelligence.

  • Since the distinguishing properties of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Essential Tremor (ET) are very similar, disease diagnoses and tremor severity evaluations performed by physicians are prone to high degrees of subjectivity and error.
  • From spirals drawn by PD, ET and control subjects, a computer can automatically learn features to diagnose the diseases from the spirals and to automatically determine tremor severity.
  • By performing movement disorder diagnosis and tremor severity evaluation in this way, patients are more likely to be diagnosed correctly and for a fraction of the current cost ensuring that they can be treated appropriately.
