dc.description.abstractAutomatically recognizing and identifying the characteristics of a cranial cruciate de cientdog`s gait with the presence of Osteoarthritis is very helpful to the veterinarians. A cruciate de -cient dog`s gait has several features which can indicate dysfunction. These features are representedby raw data obtained from the College of Veterinary Medicine, UGA. This data was trained andtested with existing learning tools such as NeuroShell and See- 5.0 to nd patterns of regularityand classi cation. Based on this one of the features was chosen “Internal /External rotation” angle.In this thesis, we have discussed several pattern recognition methods to determine the dys-function in cruciate de cient dogs with osteoarthritis. We have also discussed the building of arecognition system based on Fourier domain representation of “Internal /External rotation” angle,which has proved to be the most discerning feature between dogs with and without sti e instabilityand secondary osteoarthritis.Having found this feature, to recognize the presence of osteoarthritis automatically, 3 algo-rithms have been implemented - Neural Network Learner, Decision Tree Learner and K-NearestNeighbors (KNN). The recognition system performed well in the classi cation.INDEXWORDS:Osteoarthritis, Gait Analysis, Flexion, Extension, Internal Rotation,External Rotation, Abduction, AdductionUSING PATTERN RECOGNITION TECHNIQUESTO DETERMINE CHANGESINTHE GAITOFCRANIAL CRUCIATE DEFICIENT DOGSWITH OSTEOARTHRITISbyDURGA YELURIB.Tech, Kakatiya University, India, 2001A Thesis Submitted to the Graduate Facultyof The University of Georgia in Partial Ful llmentof theRequirements for the DegreeMASTEROF SCIENCEATHENS, GEORGIA2005
