Health providers currently construct their differential diagnosis for a given medical case most often based on textbook knowledge and clinical experience. Data mining of the large amount of medical records generated daily in hospitals is only very rarely done, limiting the reusability of these cases. As part of the VISCERAL project, the Retrieval benchmark was organized to evaluate available approaches for medical case-based retrievalCase-based retrieval. Participant algorithms were required to find and rank relevant medical cases from a large multimodal dataset (including semantic RadLex terms extracted from text and visual 3D data) for common query topics. The relevance assessment of the cases was done by medical experts who selected cases that are useful for a differential diagnosis for the given query case. The approaches that integrated information from both the RadLex terms and the 3D volumes (mixed techniques) obtained the best results based on five standard evaluation metrics. The benchmark set up, dataset description and result analysis are presented.
