A Journey trough Clinical Applications of Multimethod Decision Trees
- 440 Downloads
We present a journey through successful applications of multimethod approach to induction of decision trees in knowledge extraction, discovery of new knowledge and early diagnosis on the cases of asthma, cardiovascular problems and mitral valve prolapse. The results show that the multimethod approach is a powerful and promising technique enabling the conformation of existing medical knowledge and more interestingly, also enables the induction of new facts and hypothesis, which can reveal some new interesting patterns and possibly improve the existing medical knowledge.
