Decision-Making Process in Colon Disease and Crohn’s Disease Treatment


The article presents the process of building a logistic regression model, which aims to support the decision-making process in medicine. Currently, there is no precise diagnosis for ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD). Specialist physicians must exclude many other diseases occurring in the colon. The first goal of this study is a retrospective analysis of medical data of patients hospitalized in the Department of Gastroenterology and Internal Diseases and finding the symptoms differentiating the two analyzed diseases. The second goal is to build a system that clearly points to UC or CD, which shortens the time of diagnosis and facilitates the treatment of patients. The work focuses on building a model that can be the basis for the construction of classifiers, which are one of the basic elements in the medical recommendation system. The developed logistic regression model will define the probability of the disease and will indicate the statistically significant changes that affect the onset of the disease. The value of probability will be one of the main reasons for the decision.
