Center for Modelbaseret Medicinsk Beslutningsstøtte


Center for Model-based Medical Decision Support (MMDS) has carried out epoch-making research within model-based medical decision support since 1998. The center is located in a dynamic environment at Aalborg University in Denmark and currently counts 14 employees and Ph.D.-students.

The goals of the center are as follows:

To develop methods for the construction, testing and clinical integration of model-based medical decision support systems.

To demonstrate the validity of the approach by successful clinical integration of diagnostic and therapeutic decisions and reduced cost of health care.

To promote industrial exploitation of MMDS.

The research group is among those that have pioneered the use of models in medical decision support systems, in particular complex stochastic models implemented as Causal Probabilistic Networks.

The group has worked on methods for probabilistic reasoning, including methods for decision theoretic reasoning in influence diagrams, and on problems of knowledge acquisition and representation.

Promising results have been obtained with model-based decision support systems in three different areas of medicine:

1.  Antibiotic therapy (TREAT)

2.  Optimal ventilation of critically ill patients (INVENT)

3.  Diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders (MUNIN).

The above-mentioned 3 systems are based on models, deterministic or stochastic, and all use decision theory to balance the multidimensional advantages and disadvantages of the diagnostic and therapeutic options.
