The proposed adaptive model makes diagnosis on the basis of semi-automatic data analysis with recent machine learning methods. The objective is to provide an intelligent computer-based support for medical specialists. Adaptive systems can act in a robust way and obtain flexible diagnosis based on different scenarios. We apply experts' knowledge in the area of cardiological diseases. Using the adaptive model we are developing a specific methodology for classification of cardiovascular diseases, The experimental results from our model are presented and discussed.
