ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to data mining techniques applied to an endoscopy database. Large databases may contain interesting patterns in classification data that represent valuable information that could be used to supplement clinical decisions. However, due to the size and complexity of the data, it is often extremely difficult to identify these patterns from what is lust random variation. To researchers' knowledge data mining techniques have not been previously applied to endoscopy databases.
