Medical science has a long history characterised by incidents of extraordinary insights that have resulted in a paradigm shift in the methodologies and approaches used and have moved the discipline forward. While knowledge discovery has much to offer medicine, it cannot be done in ignorance of either this history or the norms of modern medical investigation. This paper explores the lineage of medical knowledge acquisition and discusses the adverse perceptions that data mining techniques will have to surmount to gain acceptance.
