eXiTCDSS: A Framework for a Workflow-based CBR for Interventional CDSS - Application to Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)

Abstract

The work presented in this paper presents a workflow-based Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) designed to give case-specific assessment to clinicians during complex surgery or Minimally Invasive Surgery (MISs). Following a perioperative workflow, the designed software will use a Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) methodology to retrieve similar past cases from a case base to give case-specific advice at any particular point of the process. The graphical user interface allows easy navigation through the whole support progress, from the initial configuration steps to the final results organized as sets of experiments easily visualized in a userfriendly way. The tool is presented giving advice to an example application, a complex minimally invasive surgery which is receiving growing attention lately, the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI).
