MATERIALS AND METHODS The patients were selected by routine examination of photosensitive patients and by studying hospital records.(More)
Software is one of the most complex systems produced by humans. Software development is therefore also complex task and does not result only in production of final software but also produces many additional artifacts. To ensure quality of final product, software development process must be controlled and proper decisions have to be taken at appropriate(More)
Alcohol dependence syndrome is hard to diagnose because none of the existing laboratory markers alone has sufficient specificity and sensitivity. This study investigated whether combinations of markers would improve the identification of patients with alcohol dependence syndrome. Intelligent data analysis was carried out using the decision tree induction(More)
E-learning is becoming an important part of education and it can provide new possibilities for disabled people.

In this paper we present a multimethod approach for induction of a specific class of classifiers, which can assist physicians in medical diagnosing in the case of mitral valve prolapse. Mitral valve prolapse is one of the most controversial prevalent cardiac condition and may affect up to ten percent of the population and in the worst case results in sudden(More)
Early and accurate diagnosing of various diseases has proved to be of vital importance in many health care processes.

However, in many cases the proposed treatment, prediction or diagnose can(More)
The success of the e-learning offering depends on it's quality. There is no standard quality model in e-learning, therefore the unique model used in the case study is presented. The SMEs Go Online project aimed to build up competitiveness of small and middle sized enterprises (SME), by offering e-learning courses for their employees in computer and(More)
Coronary artery disease is one of the most frequent causes of premature deaths in Slovenia and also in most countries in the world. A “gold standard” for treatment of left main coronary artery (LMCA) stenosis is still a surgical therapy; however Percutanueous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) is much simpler for the patients and gives comparable(More)
