The research into the impersonality and information of the Traditional Chinese-medicine Diagnosis (TCMD) is recognized to be a crucial work, especially for the Traditional Chinese-medicine (TCM) medicine examination system. However the tongue is like a mirror of the Viscera, and the pathological changes of them can reflect on the tongue. So according the information of the Sizhen for the syndromes of the Kidney, we design the initial structure of the PGNN (Probabilistic Genetic Neural Network), and its connection weight and the structure of the PGNN automatically will be optimized by the GA and others optimal way. It is certain that the groping research will be use for the modernization of the TCM.
