Expert System for Medical Diagnosis of Hypertension and Anaemia

Daniel Matthias


The paucity of Medical Experts in developing countries has subjected large percentage of its populace to preventable ailments and deaths. A medical diagnostic system uses the computer with an interactive interface to simulate a medical doctor skill in diagnosis of ailments and prescription of treatments, hence can be used to provide the same service in the absence of the medical experts. The system is built with Bayesian Network technology. Bayesian Network is an efficient technique in modelling real life problems and reasoning under uncertainties.
