Pulse diagnosis is one of the most important examinations in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In response to the subjectivity and fuzziness of pulse diagnosis in TCM, quantitative systems or methods are needed to modernize pulse diagnosis. In pulse diagnosis, strength is one of the most difficult factors to recognize. To explore the quantitative recognition of pulse strength, a novel method based on decision tree (DT) is presented. The proposed method is testified by applying it to classify four hundreds pulse signal samples collected from clinic. The results are mostly accord with the expertise, which indicate that the method we proposed is feasible and effective and can identify pulse signals accurately, which can be expected to facilitate the modernization of pulse diagnosis.
