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.

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.
