This paper proposes a fuzzy methodology to translate the natural language descriptions of the TW3 method for bone age assessment into an automatic classifier. The classifier is built upon a modified version of a fuzzy ID3 decision tree. No large data records are needed to train the classifier, i.e., to find out the classification rules, since the classifier is built upon rules given by the TW3 method. Only small data records are needed to fine-tune the fuzzy sets used to implement the rulebase. © 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
