Paper Abstract

The main preoperative way to assess the malignant degree of brain glioma is based on patient's MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) findings and clinical data. Neuroradiologists' experience plays a critical role during the process due to the lack of knowledge about the relationships between influential factors and types of tumor. In order to improve the diagnosis accuracy without incurring the troubles in learning experience from domain experts, we ask help from data mining. Multi-layer perceptron network, decision tree, and rules indication are its common techniques. They are adopted to extract useful diagnostic patterns directly from MRI records of brain glioma patients.
