Prediction of Liver Disease using Regression Tree

Vinutha M.R., Chandrika J.


Abstract— Data Mining plays a decisive role especially in medical domain. Decision trees are predominant model in machine learning. Decision trees are simple and very effective classification approach. The decision tree identifies the utmost prime features of a given problem. One of the most common disease in India is Liver Cirrhosis. It is distinctly difficult to uncover Liver Cirrhosis in its initial stage. However early diagnosis of Liver Cirrhosis is highly important.The liver disease data set has a collection of distinguishing features that affect the healthy state of a patient. Machine Learning methods enable knowledge acquisition in early stages and use of this acquired knowledge plays an important role in solving problems like suppose if we want to predict whether the patient with the Liver Cirrhosis has also been suffering from Hepatitis C or not. In order to easily arrive at this knowledge certainly there is a need for fully integrated system. In this paper the collected Liver disease data set is analyzed and prognosticated whether the patient is suffering from liver cirrhosis or not.
