Basically, the medical diagnosis process can be interpreted as a decision making process, during which the physician induces the diagnosis of a new and unknown case from an available set of clinical data and from his/her clinical experience. This process can be computerized in order to present medical diagnostic procedures in a rational, objective, accurate and fast way. In fact, in the last two-three decades diagnostic decision support systems have become a well established component of medical technology. In this talk, we address our attention to cancer early detection on the basis of small amount of clinical information. In order to develop a decision support system in this specific context, we emphasized the powerful efficiency and effectiveness of Mathematical Programming approaches as basic tools for developing medical diagnostic decision support systems.

Abstract

Basically, the medical diagnosis process can be interpreted as a decision making process, during which the physician induces the diagnosis of a new and unknown case from an available set of clinical data and from his/her clinical experience. This process can be computerized in order to present medical diagnostic procedures in a rational, objective, accurate and fast way. In fact, in the last two-three decades diagnostic decision support systems have become a well established component of medical technology. In this talk, we address our attention to cancer early detection on the basis of small amount of clinical information. In order to develop a decision support system in this specific context, we emphasized the powerful efficiency and effectiveness of Mathematical Programming approaches as basic tools for developing medical diagnostic decision support systems.
