Experience with Expert Systems in Clinical Chemistry
In our laboratory we use X-ray analysis for the determination of the composition of renal stones. Diffractograms were made with the Debye-Scher-rer-Hull technique and interpreted by an expert. The expert scrutinized the diffractogram and subsequently gave his opinion about the composition of the stone. The results are correct within 10%. In both Dutch and German surveys this technique has been proven highly satisfactory. However, the interpretation of the diffractograms requires considerable skill and experience. The expert knowledge necessary cannot easily be learned by other people.
