Título Medical diagnosis aboard submarines: use of a computer-based Bayesian method of analysis in an abdominal pain diagnostic program
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1984, Vol.26, No.2, p.110-114. Illus. 12 ref.
Resumen A Bayesian method of analysis using an onboard microcomputer has been used to diagnose causes of abdominal pain in crewmen aboard submarines. Early results from sea trials showed an appropriate diagnosis in 8 of 10 cases of abdominal pain. The programme, which is still in a test phase, may replace or enhance current methods which involve the use of a medical history and physical examination, clinical acumen and limited laboratory testing by the submarine medical department representative.
