Paper Abstract

This paper presents a computerized expert consultation system for diagnosing those diseases which are common but difficult to discriminate. It is aimed at the lung diseases with globular pathologic change. The knowledge base of the system consists of two modules where over 300 rules are stored. It decomposes all knowledge used into thirteen planes in which hierarchical controlling strategies are designed to search the solutions quickly and completely. We use the OPS83 as the development tool. In addition, an image processing subsystem is constructed as a part of this system. We incorporate artificial intelligence into image analysis and adopt the combination of the image processing techniques and expert knowledge so as to increase the diagnostic reliability of lung diseases.
