Medical science is not an exact science in which processes can be easily analyzed and modeled. Rough set theory has proven well suited for accommodating such inexactness of the medical profession. As rough set theory matures and its theoretical perspective is extended, the theory has been also followed by development of innovative rough sets systems as a result of this maturation. Unique concerns in medical sciences as well as the need of integrated rough sets systems are discussed. We present a short survey of ongoing research and a case study on integrating rough set theory and medical application. Issues in the current state of rough sets in advancing medical technology and some of its challenges are also highlighted. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
