Computer-Aided Sequential Diagnosis Using Fuzzy Relations – Comparative Analysis of Methods
A specific feature of the explored diagnosis task is the dependence between patient’s states at particular instants, which should be taken into account in sequential diagnosis algorithms. In this paper methods for performing sequential diagnosis using fuzzy relation in product of diagnoses set and fuzzified feature space are developed and evaluated. In the proposed method first on the base of learning set fuzzy relation is determined as a solution of appropriate optimization problem and next this relation in the form of matrix of membership grade values is used at successive instants of sequential diagnosis process. Different algorithms of sequential diagnosis which differ with as well the sets of input data as procedure are described. Proposed algorithms were practically applied to the computer-aided recognition of patient’s acid-base equilibrium states where as an optimization procedure genetic algorithm was used. Results of comparative experimental analysis of investigated algorithms in respect of classification accuracy are also presented and discussed.
