ISBN: 978-1-60566-218-3; 464 pp; February 2009
Published under Medical Information Science Reference, an imprint of IGI Global
http://www.igi-global.com/reference/details.asp?id=33153
 
Edited by: Petr Berka, University of Economics, Prague, Czech Republic; Jan Rauch, University of Economics, Prague, Czech Republic; Djamel Abdelkader Zighed, University of Lumiere Lyon 2, France
 
DESCRIPTION
The healthcare industry produces a constant flow of data, creating a need for deep analysis of databases through data mining tools and techniques resulting in expanded medical research, diagnosis, and treatment.
 
Data Mining and Medical Knowledge Management: Cases and Applications presents case studies on applications of various modern data mining methods in several important areas of medicine, covering classical data mining methods, elaborated approaches related to mining in electroencephalogram and electrocardiogram data, and methods related to mining in genetic data. A premier resource for those involved in data mining and medical knowledge management, this book tackles ethical issues related to cost-sensitive learning in medicine and produces theoretical contributions concerning general problems of data, information, knowledge, and ontologies.
 
****************************************
"This publication is a collection of case studies in which advanced DM and KM solutions are applied to concrete cases in biomedical research. The reader will find all the peculiarities of the medical field, which require specific solutions to complex problems."
