Abstract

Over time, physicians gather a vast amount of data such as radiographic images, medical procedures, treatments, and insurance coverage about the patients. A Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) system is developed to organize and retrieve such data to aid physicians in making a diagnosis and formulating a treatment plan for patients with similar traits. This research is an extension of the earlier work presented by the authors. Our earlier research did not consider radiographic images, although radiology plays a vital role in diagnosing and treating patients. Currently, a new algorithm is created to retrieve and organize information from the CBR system to add radiographic images to the patient’s case data. This system is tested and the performance results prove that the acceptance rate achieved by this system is higher than that of the earlier system.
