An Approach Towards a Heartbeat Sound Information Retrieval System
This event took place on Friday 01 October 2010 at 11:30

Interpretation of heart sounds can be a problematic and difficult task for cardiology specialists. Diagnosis of heart diseases requires special skill and clinical experience along with detailed and expensive tests. However, heart disease diagnosis by heart beat sounds is preferable and still widely used as the first step of diagnosis. Recently, Computer aided auscultation has emerged as a cost-effective technique to analyze and interpret the heart sounds. In this study we propose a feasible technique for developing a heart beat sound retrieval system using text based approaches useful towards automated heart disease detection.
