|Abstract:||Increased transcranial Doppler ultrasound (TCD) velocity is an indicator of cerebral infarction in children with sickle cell disease (SCD). In this article, the parallel genetic algorithm ( PGA) is used to select a stroke risk model with TCD velocity as the response variable. Development of such a stroke risk model leads to the identification of children with SCD who are at a higher risk of stroke and their treatment in the early stages. Using blood velocity data from SCD patients, it is shown that the PGA is an easy-to-use computationally variable selection tool. The results of the PGA are also compared with those obtained from the stochastic search variable selection method, the Dantzig selector and conventional techniques such as stepwise selection and best subset selection.|
