Medicine can be characterized as a scientific area with special emphasis on experience, communication and applied research. Experience comes from analysis or review of results of a number of diagnosed patients and treatments which are documented in medical records. Every physician has his way of fulfilling this medical duty. Epidemiologists draw conclusions from these medical records; in specific studies they register cases in a controlled way under standardized conditions.
