An integrated computational pipeline for machine learning-driven diagnosis based on Raman spectra of saliva samples.

Publication date: Feb 01, 2024

Raman Spectroscopy promises the ability to encode in spectral data the significant differences between biological samples belonging to patients affected by a disease and samples of healthy patients (controls). However, the decoding and interpretation of the Raman spectral fingerprint is still a difficult and time-consuming procedure even for domain experts. In this work, we test an end-to-end deep-learning diagnostic pipeline able to classify spectral data from saliva samples. The pipeline has been validated against the SARS-COV-2 Infection and for the screening of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. The proposed system can be used for the fast prototyping of promising non-invasive, cost and time-efficient diagnostic screening tests.
