The first step in a knowledge base expert system could be to mathematically evaluate perceptions of the domain experts which are invariably expressed in linguistic terms based on their tactic knowledge followed by the defined steps in differential diagnostic process. We have simulated the process in three stages, especially in gynaecological diseases. Stage I, refers to Type1 Fuzzy Relational Calculus used to arrive at the initial diagnostic labels for gynaecological diseases in patients and to estimate similarity between the domain experts. The case study focused only on the identified gynaecological diseases arrives at comparatively low diagnostic percentage, and therefore termed as Initial Screening Process. The output of the algorithm for patient diagnostic records, considering the variability among the experts, was tested for diagnosing a single disease. After application of ‘History’ fuzzy rule base in Stage 2, using Type 1 Fuzzy Inference System, the accuracy was increased to some extent which was further enhanced to high level by Stage III for the prototype of 226 patients diagnosed by the model. The need based research presented will ultimately assist physicians and upcoming gynaecologists.
