Case Based Reasoning in Cardiovascular Disease

This page still under construction.

Over the last eight years, we have been working on the problem of case-based reasoning (CBR) for medical diagnosis. Through a succession of research projects, we developed a system that used physiologic causes to match findings in cases, evaluated the system on 240 cases, and developed a system that divides cases and memory based on the diagnostic units in the case. Each of these steps has been a significant advance toward diagnostic systems that can effectively learn from experience. Still, it is clear that CBR has not reached its potential to effectively handle the case material and work in concert with a model-based program.
