Application of Rough Sets Theory to the Sequential Diagnosis
Sequential classification task is typical in medical diagnosis, when the investigations of the patient’s state are repeated several times. Such situation takes place in controlling of the drug therapy efficacy. In this paper the methods of sequential classification using rough sets theory are developed and evaluated. The proposed algorithms, using the set of learning sequences, calculate the lower and upper approximations of the set of proper decision formulas and then use them to make final decision. Depending on the input data different algorithms are derived. Next, all presented algorithms were practically applied in computer-aided recognition of the human acid-base state balance and the results of comparative experimental analysis of in respect of classification accuracy are also presented and discussed.
