In this study, SHP2 was confirmed to be discriminatively expressed in human thyroid tumour and normal tissues as shown by IHC, which allowed it to be a potential marker for the identification of thyroid tumour by molecular ultrasound imaging with higher diagnostic accuracy.

The effective observation models are constructed based on the learned multi life span dictionary for both generatively and discriminatively. In addition, these are deployed into the Bayesian sequential estimation framework for tracking based on the particle filter implementation.

To improve the performances, many improved naive Bayes algorithms are proposed in literature, such as the Averaged One-Dependence Estimators (AODE) [14], Weighted Average of One-Dependence Estimators (WAODE) [15], Hidden Naive Bayes (HNB) [16], Deep Feature Weighted Naive Bayes (DFWNB) [17], Discriminatively Weighted Naive Bayes (DWNB) [18], Averaged Tree Augmented Naive Bayes (ATAN) [19], and Super Parent TAN (SP) [14].
Thus, structurally, the SRI would measure diversified health impairments more discriminatively than the MRF-26, although it may take more time to be administered.
