Abstract: Combinations of Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and Subheadings in MEDLINE citations may be used to infer relationships among medical concepts. To facilitate clinical decision model construction, we propose an approach to automatically extract semantic relations among medical terms from MEDLINE citations. We use the Apriori association rule mining algorithm to generate the co-occurrences of medical concepts, which are then filtered through a set of predefined semantic templates to instantiate useful relations. From such semantic relations, decision elements and possible relationships among them may be derived for clinical decision model construction. To evaluate the proposed method, we have conducted a case study in colorectal cancer management; preliminary results have shown that useful causal relations and decision alternatives can be extracted.
