Sinusitis is a condition when sinuses membranes are plugged or inflamed or swollen due to infection. There are several types of sinusitis, one of them, which will be explained in this study, is acute and chronic sinusitis. There are many ways to diagnose sinusitis such as allergy tests, nasal endoscopy, CT Scans and MRI. In this study, a diagnosis will be made whether someone has acute sinusitis or chronic sinusitis by using clustering techniques with machine learning. In medical field machine learning can be used to help to analyse medical data more quickly and accurately therefore the patient can get the treatment sooner. in this study, the machine learning method used is kernel entropy fuzzy c-means (KEFCM). The kernel will be used in the Entropy Fuzzy C-means (EFCM) method which can represent multiplication in a high-dimensional space and the kernel that will be used is RBF and Polynomial. This sinusitis data used in this study were obtained from the Laboratory of Radiology at Cipto Mangunkusumo National General Hospital, Indonesia with this method it will get 97% Accuracy.
