Rio Andika Malik, Marta Riri Frimadani, Dwipa Junika Putra


Soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infection remains a significant global health challenge, affecting millions of people, particularly in developing countries. A convolutional neural network (CNN) approach to optimize the detection of STH infections in microscopic images. The study aims to assess the effectiveness of the CNN model in identifying and classifying STH worm eggs accurately. The research employs MATLAB as the primary tool for conducting experiments and validation tests. By implementing image preprocessing techniques to enhance image quality and applying precise segmentation methods, the CNN model is trained on a dataset of microscopic images to learn and classify STH infections effectively. The validation test results demonstrate that the CNN model achieved a high accuracy rate of 92.31% in classifying STH infections. This accuracy surpasses traditional methods, which are time-consuming and susceptible to human errors. This study underscores the importance of integrating artificial intelligence, particularly CNN, into the healthcare domain to support detecting and diagnosing diseases requiring specialized expertise, such as STH infections. The findings of this research can serve as a valuable reference for researchers, medical practitioners, and data scientists in leveraging artificial intelligence to enhance the quality of healthcare services, leading to positive impacts on society worldwide.
