In this paper we present a new entropy measure to grow decision trees. This measure has the characteristic to be asymmetric, allowing the user to grow trees which better correspond to his expectation in terms of recall and precision on each class. Then we propose decision rules adapted to such trees. Experiments have been realized on real medical data from breast cancer screening units.
