Abstract

By means of data mining techniques, we can exploit furtive and precious information through medicine data bases. Because of huge amount of this information, study and analyses are too difficult. We want some methods to exploring through data and extract valuable information which can be used in the future similar cases. One of these cases is accouchement. The mechanism of accouchement is a natural and spontaneous process without the need to any intervention. In some conditions, maybe mother, baby or both of them are in hazard and need help and support. This help is provided by Caesarian Section which saves mother and baby. Nevertheless, we need to know when we should use surgery. This study explains utilization of medical data mining in determination of medical operation methods. We render this with accumulating 80 pregnant women information. The results show that decision tree algorithm designed for this case study generates correct prediction for more than 86. 25% tests cases
