Abstract

The purpose of this chapters is to provide a review and commentary on the current state of fuzzy logic applications in medical diagnosis. A symposium on fuzzy diagnostic and therapeutic decision support, organized by Adlassnig (2000) may be considered a watershed in the application of fuzzy logic in medical problems. For a deeper discussion on fuzzy logic in medicine see Szczepaniak et al. (2000).
