This article addresses the special features of data mining with medical data. Researchers in other fields may not be aware of the particular constraints and difficulties of the privacy-sensitive, heterogeneous, but voluminous data of medicine. Ethical and legal aspects of medical data mining are...
The first task in any medical data mining effort is ensuring patient confidentiality. In the past, most data mining efforts ensured confidentiality by the dubious policy of witholding their raw data from colleagues and the public. A cursory review of medical informatics literature in the past...
Analysis of a clinical head trauma dataset was aided by the use of a new, binary-based data mining technique, termed Boolean analyzer (BA), which finds dependency/association rules. With initial guidance from a domain user or domain expert, the BA algorithm is given one or more metrics to...
This paper presents a new approach to the application of structural pattern recognition methods for image understanding, based on content analysis and knowledge discovery performed on medical images. This presents in particular computer analysis and recognition of local stenoses of the coronary...
We present a case study of machine learning and data mining in intensive care medicine. In the study, we compared different methods of measuring pressure–volume curves in artificially ventilated patients suffering from the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Our aim was to show that...
Present-day healthcare witnesses a growing demand for coordination of patient care. Coordination is needed especially in those cases in which hospitals have structured healthcare into specialty-oriented units, while a substantial portion of patient care is not limited to single units. From a...
Diabetes is a major health problem in the United States. There is a long history of diabetic registries and databases with systematically collected patient information. We examine one such diabetic data warehouse, showing a method of applying data mining techniques, and some of the data issues,...
HEp-2 cells are used for the identification of antinuclear autoantibodies (ANAs). They allow for recognition of over 30 different nuclear and cytoplasmic patterns, which are given by upwards of 100 different autoantibodies. The identification of the patterns has recently been done manually by a...
