Abstract

© 2018 IEEE. Despite 60 years of research into necrotising enterocolitis (NEC), our understanding of the disease has not improved enough to achieve better outcomes. Even though NEC has remained the leading cause of death and poor outcomes in preterm infants, there remain vital questions on how to define, differentiate and detect the condition. Numerous international groups have recently highlighted NEC as a research priority and called for broader engagement of the scientific community to move the field forward. The three foremost barriers at present are lack of suitable definition(s), lack of clean datasets and consequently a lack of scope to gain sufficient insights from data. This research paper proposes a new direction of travel to advance neonatal gastro-intestinal monitoring and strengthen our efforts to gain better insights from global databases. An integrated machine learning based model is recommended to produce a comprehensive disease model to manage the complexity of this multi-variate disease. This intelligent disease model would be used in the daily neonatal settings to help aggregate data to support clinical decision making, better capture the complexity of each patient to enrich global datasets to create bigger and better data. This paper reviews current machine learning and CAD technologies in neonatology and suggests an innovative approach for an NEC disease model.
