This interdisciplinary book introduces a novel algorithm and corresponding computer program that finally enables computers to efficiently diagnose diseases in actual patients, as opposed to existing simple training tools for internal medicine.

Abstract:
This algorithm and corresponding computer program emulates the diagnostic reasoning of a clinician. Accurate and efficient, it concludes only those final diagnoses that agree with the diseases that actually afflict a patient. A differential diagnosis list is created and the probability of each diagnosis is calculated with a novel procedure that we call Mini-Max Procedure that uses the positive predictive value of clinical data present to increase probability and the sensitivity of clinical data absent to reduce probability. The probability of a diagnosis is considered equal to the maximum positive predictive value of all clinical data present that support the diagnosis, circumventing more complex and inaccurate methods.
