Teather, Derek, Teather, Briony A., Jeffery, Nathan P., du Boulay, George H., du Boulay, Benedict and Sharples, Mike (2000) Statistical support for uncertainty in radiological diagnosis. Methods of Information in Medicine, 39 (1). pp. 1-6. ISSN 0026-1270Full text not available from this repository.
Radiological interpretation and diagnosis involves the comparison and classification of complex medical images and is typical of the categorisation tasks that have been the subject of observational studies in Cognitive Science. This paper considers the affinity between statistical modelling and theories of categorisation for naturally occurring categories. Statistical based measures of similarity and typicality with a probabilistic interpretation are derived. The utilisation of these measures in the support of diagnosis under uncertainty via interactive overview plots is described. The application of the methodology to magnetic resonance imaging of the head is considered. The methods detailed have application to other fields involving archiving and retrieving of image data.
