A computer-aided Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) for diagnosis and treatment often plays a vital role and brings essential benefits for clinicians. Such a CDSS could function as an expert for a less experienced clinician or as a second option/opinion of an experienced clinician to their decision making task. This paper presents 3 clinical Decision Support Systems as an overview of case-based reasoning (CBR) research and development. Two medical domains are used here for the case study 1) CDSS for stress diagnosis 2) CDSS for stress treatment and 3) CDSS for post-operative pain treatment. The observation shows the current developments; future direction and pros and cons of the CBR approach. Moreover; the paper shares the experiences of developing 3CDSS in medical domain.
