Modeling Reuse on Case-Based Reasoning with Application to Breast Cancer Diagnosis
In the recent years, there has been an increasing interest on the use of case-based reasoning (CBR) in Medicine. CBR is characterized by four phases: retrieve, reuse, revise and retain. The first and last phases have received a lot of attention by the researchers, while the reuse phase is still in its infancy. The reuse phase involves a multi-facet problem which includes dealing with the closeness to the decision threshold used to determine similar cases, among other issues. In this paper, we propose a new reuse method whose decision variable is based on the similarity ratio. We have applied the method and tested in a breast cancer diagnosis database.
