IMAGENDO: Diagnosing endometriosis  with imaging and AI

This project will provide a cost-effective, accessible, and accurate method to non-invasively diagnose endometriosis. Specialist endometriosis ultrasound and MRI images will be used to develop a diagnostic machine learning algorithm that determines the likelihood that an individual has endometriosis. Images uploaded by endometriosis patients, doctors, and in-built software in imaging machines, will be analysed by this algorithm on a cloud-based digital platform. By delivering National Action Plan for Endometriosis Priorities and Research Goals and integrating with the Australian Endometriosis Registry, this tool will improve access to simpler and less invasive diagnostic tests and treatments for people negatively impacted by endometriosis.

HERA-QoL-P: Scoping appropriate quality of life dimensions for the development of a meaningful quality of life tool for PCOS

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine condition in women, with a diverse range of symptoms related to problems with fertility, weight gain, mental health and sleep.  Although common, it is thought to be under-diagnosed, and it is not a stable condition over the life course.  Women with PCOS have different experiences of QoL depending on their age, ethnicity, socio economic status, severity and phenotype.

A high-quality QoL questionnaire could help to highlight women’s specific priorities, and then could help to measure whether their healthcare addresses such priorities. We aim to survey 200 women and  interview 20-30 women diagnosed with PCOS about aspects of life important for their quality of life, including the impact of this condition on physical, mental and emotional health, and understand whether PCOS affects women differently according to their profile of symptoms and background, so we can develop a new tool

Endocrine profiles of women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) in midlife: New investigations of the Lucina cohort

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), is the most common endocrine disorder of reproductive age. The true prevalence, and reproductive and metabolic outcomes of older women with PCOS is unknown. PCOS is not a stable condition over the life course, but a dynamic and follows different clinical and metabolic features. Women from the South Australian Lucina cohort (11.9% PCOS) were assessed 15 years ago when they were 30 years of age. These women will be aged 42-48 years in 2018. Endocrine and metabolic parameters worsen in women with PCOS as they age, increasing their risk for life-long health issues beyond menopause.

We intend to re-examine women with one or more symptom of PCOS who previously had clinical investigations. The 108 women who were previously referred for examination (Rotterdam) will be retraced and invited to undertake examination. Information repeating what was obtained previously, will be gathered through a structured interview. We will reengage the cohort and measure anthropometric indices, psycho-social and reproductive history, hirsutism classification, as well as fasting lipid, testosterone, SHBG, FAI, Free T, 2 hour glucose tolerance test, weight and record of illness and medications and potentially also ovarian morphology, including PCO.

Women who were born in 1973-1975 will be in their 40s now. Most will have completed childbearing but will still be menstruating. This is an ideal time to follow up and reengage this cohort preparing for future research. PCOS places a costly burden on the health care system and impacts on health and quality of life. However, perimenopause and menopause, have not often been considered in the management of PCOS, particularly in a longitudinal cohort. Reproductive and ovarian features of PCOS decrease at menopause and retrospective diagnosis is difficult. Later life PCOS has not been well researched: with no quality longitudinal natural history studies, we lack data on incidence and prevalence of heart disease and stroke in PCOS, however identifying any deterioration of cardio-metabolic profiles will contribute to the development of targeted strategies to help this prevalent and high risk population achieve optimal health into their later years. .

Barriers to reducing postpartum weight retention in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Post-partum weight retention is a key contributor to overweight and obesity in women.  The post-partum period is therefore a critical life stage to focus weight management interventions for women.  This is particularly relevant for women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) given their higher risk of obesity-related morbidity and elevated risk for cardiometabolic complications such as Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Cardiovascular Disease.  PCOS affects up to 18% of reproductive aged women and is the most common endocrine disorder in women.  It generates numerous health problems across the lifespan including reproductive (hyperandrogenism, menstrual disorders, infertility and pregnancy complications), metabolic (obesity, insulin resistance and risk factors for and prevalence of type 2 diabetes or cardiovascular disease) and psychological (anxiety and depression) implications.  The aetiology of PCOS is unclear: however both genetic inheritance and lifestyle factors may be implicated.  Obesity exacerbates and weight loss ameliorates many features of PCOS and treatment for PCOS includes weight management, encouraging a healthy lifestyle, optimal nutrition and physical activity.

Depression and its Association with the Psychosocial Factors of Urinary Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence is associated with psychological distress, depression and anxiety. Those with incontinence often experience depression and a reduced quality of life. We can gauge the impact of incontinence by examining the limitations on the women’s lives and their perceptions about the seriousness of their condition, and we can target interventions towards these women.  I found that resilience is protective against depression in this group of women, and interventions can be designed for specific age groups to increase resilience, so that the burden, including depression, is eased and quality of life is increased in women experiencing incontinence.
