This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third MICCAI Workshop on Medical Content-Based Retrieval for Clinical Decision Support, MCBR-CBS 2012, held in Nice, France, in October 2012. The 10 revised full papers presented together with 2 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 15 submissions. The papers are divided on several topics on image analysis of visual or multimodal medical data (X-ray, MRI, CT, echo videos, time series data), machine learning of disease correlations in visual or multimodal data, algorithms for indexing and retrieval of data from visual or multimodal medical databases, disease model-building and clinical decision support systems based on visual or multimodal analysis, algorithms for medical image retrieval or classification, systems of retrieval or classification using the ImageCLEF collection.
