Conventional evaluation of X-ray radiographs aiming at diagnosing cervical spondylosis (CS) often depends on the clinic experiences, visual reading of radiography, and analysis of certain regions of interest (ROIs) about clinician himself or herself. These steps are not only time consuming and subjective, but also prone to error for inexperienced clinicians due to low resolution of X-ray. This paper proposed an approach based on fuzzy calculation to classify CS. From the X-ray of CS manifestations, we extracted 10 effective ROIs to establish X-ray symptom-disease table of CS. Fuzzy calculation model based on the table can be carried out to classify CS and improve the diagnosis accuracy. The proposed model yields approximately 80.33% accuracy in classifying CS.
