Abstract

Malaria is a severe disease caused by Plasmodium parasites, which can be detected through blood smear images. The early identification of the disease can effectively reduce the severity rate. Deep learning (DL) models can be widely employed to analyze biomedical images, thereby minimizing the misclassification rate. With this objective, this study developed an intelligent deep-transfer-learning-based malaria parasite detection and classification (IDTL-MPDC) model on blood smear images. The proposed IDTL-MPDC technique aims to effectively determine the presence of malarial parasites in blood smear images. In addition, the IDTL-MPDC technique derives median filtering (MF) as a pre-processing step. In addition, a residual neural network (Res2Net) model was employed for the extraction of feature vectors, and its hyperparameters were optimally adjusted using the differential evolution (DE) algorithm. The k-nearest neighbor (KNN) classifier was used to assign appropriate classes to the blood smear images. The optimal selection of Res2Net hyperparameters by the DE model helps achieve enhanced classification outcomes. A wide range of simulation analyses of the IDTL-MPDC technique are carried out using a benchmark dataset, and its performance seems to be highly accurate (95.86%), highly sensitive (95.82%), highly specific (95.98%), with a high F1 score (95.69%), and high precision (95.86%), and it has been proven to be better than the other existing methods.
