Feature selection for medical diagnosis: Evaluation for using a hybrid Stacked-Genetic approach in the diagnosis of heart disease

by   Jafar Abdollahi, et al.

Background and purpose: Heart disease has been one of the most important causes of death in the last 10 years, so the use of classification methods to diagnose and predict heart disease is very important. If this disease is predicted before menstruation, it is possible to prevent high mortality of the disease and provide more accurate and efficient treatment methods. Materials and Methods: Due to the selection of input features, the use of basic algorithms can be very time-consuming. Reducing dimensions or choosing a good subset of features, without risking accuracy, has great importance for basic algorithms for successful use in the region. In this paper, we propose an ensemble-genetic learning method using wrapper feature reduction to select features in disease classification. Findings: The development of a medical diagnosis system based on ensemble learning to predict heart disease provides a more accurate diagnosis than the traditional method and reduces the cost of treatment. Conclusion: The results showed that Thallium Scan and vascular occlusion were the most important features in the diagnosis of heart disease and can distinguish between sick and healthy people with 97.57
