Application of Expert System for Diagnosing Medical Conditions: A Methodological Review


Naturally, human diseases should be treated on time; otherwise the patients might die if there is delay in attending to such patient or scarcity of medical practitioners’ or experts. Several attempts have been made through studies to design and built software based medical expert systems for probing and prognosis of several medical conditions using artificial and non-artificial based approaches for patients and medical facilities. This paper represents a comprehensive methodological review of existing medical expert systems used for diagnosis of various diseases based on the increasing demand of expert systems to support the human experts. The study provides a concise evaluation of the various techniques used such as rule-based, fuzzy, artificial neural networks and intelligent hybrid models. The rule-based techniques is not too efficient based on its inability  to learn and require powerful search strategies for its knowledge-base; while the fuzzy or ANN models are less efficient when compared to the hybrid models that can give a more accurate results.

Keywords: AI, ANN, Expert System, Fuzzy Logic, Intelligent hybrid model, Rule-based
