Symptoms overview


Symptoms are a fundamental part of this application. The symptom specification that a physician sets up will determine the vector space that is used to define the illness quantitively. Acctually the number of symtoms specified would determine the dimensional nature of that space. These symptoms are categorised as laid out in the DSMiv document. Forget about all the mathematical terms above and remember the golden rule. The more symptoms used to "rate a patient" the more accurate the model gets. For more information on the mathematical terms used here see section Analysing data
