Routine Applications of the Expert System PRO.M.D.
The development of expert systems has been influenced mainly by projects oriented towards medicine. Today’s increasing availability of professional and scientific expert systems for a variety of industrial and scientific purposes leads to the conclusion that expert systems will come back to medicine for daily routine use. In the following we investigate structure and function of the expert system PRO.M.D. (Prolog System Supporting Medical Diagnostics). We developed this system for applications in Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine, choosing Prolog as implementation language. Finally, several routine applications with different knowledge bases will be discussed.
