Use of computer based decision tools to aid clinical decision making, has been a primary goal of research in biomedical informatics. Research in the last five decades has led to the development of Medical Decision Support (MDS) applications using a variety of modeling techniques, for a diverse range of medical decision problems. This paper surveys literature on modeling techniques for diagnostic decision support, with a focus on decision accuracy. Trends and shortcomings of research in this…

ACO_NB-Based Hybrid Prediction Model for Medical Disease Diagnosis
TLDR
The research reported in this chapter is based on developing an ACO (ant colony optimization)-based Bayesian hybrid prediction model for medical disease diagnosis based on a nature-inspired algorithm known as ACO.
Using Data Mining Strategies in Clinical Decision Making: A Literature Review
TLDR
It was found that multiple models of data mining were used in clinical decision making, and although data mining is efficient and accurate, the models are limited with respect to disease and condition.
On The Use of Decision Tree for Treatment Options in Medical Decision
TLDR
The use of decision tree for treatment options in medical decision support systems by calculating probabilities of events and incorporating patient evaluations of possible outcomes based on Average Life Year (ALY) can help the medical professionals in taking decision among the available choices.

TLDR
The state of the research in the field of decision-support systems is illustrated by a set of fairly heterogeneous studies, and the idea that more elaborated computer tools, likely to combine together textual and highly structured data, including real-time data contents, are needed is supported.
Evaluation of Fuzzy Relation Method for Medical Decision Support
TLDR
The results indicate that the FR method is useful for classification problems in the medical domain, and that FR is marginally better than NB, However, the performance of FR is significantly better for datasets having high proportion of unknown attribute values, where FR can be particularly useful.
Fuzzy relation based modeling for medical diagnostic decision support: Case studies
TLDR
The proposed algorithm was found to be as accurate as Independence Bayes for diagnosing common infectious diseases from the small dataset, which may indicate the utility of proposed algorithm to optimally model the diagnostic process for small datasets; especially, due to its computational simplicity.
Fuzzy naive bayesian model for medical diagnostic decision support
TLDR
The case study on simulated dataset elucidates that FNB can be optimal overNB for diagnosing patients with imprecise-fuzzy information, and indicates optimality of FNB over NB for the infectious disease domain.

TLDR
A new framework for knowledge representation for secondary data analysis and for generation of a new typicality measure, which integrates medical knowledge into statistical analysis are presented.
Methods Paper: Evaluation of a Computerized Diagnostic Decision Support System for Patients with Pneumonia: Study Design Considerations
TLDR
In the absence of a true gold standard, the authors show how they created a credible, clinically acceptable, and economical reference standard for the diagnosis of pneumonia, to determine the overall accuracy of the system.
Combining decision support methodologies to diagnose pneumonia
TLDR
Combining decision support methodologies that process information stored in different data formats can increase the performance of a computerized decision support system.
Review: Medical Diagnostic Decision Support Systems - Past, Present, And Future: A Threaded Bibliography and Brief Commentary
TLDR
The prospects for adoption of large-scale diagnostic systems are better now than ever before, due to enthusiasm for implementation of the electronic medical record in academic, commercial, and primary care settings.
