Comparative performance analysis of machine learning classifiers in detection of childhood pneumonia using chest radiographs

Abstract

This work extends PneumoCAD, a Computer-Aided Diagnosis system for detecting pneumonia in infants using radiographic images, with the aim of improving the system’s accuracy and robustness. We implement and compare three contemporary machine learning classifiers, namely: Naive Bayes, K-Nearest Neighbor (KNN), and Support Vector Machines (SVM). Results of our experiments demonstrate that the SVM classifier produces the best overall results.
